Creamy Roasted Garlic Hummus

This is truly the perfect hummus, in my humble opinion. Roasting the garlic brings out its nutty and sweet flavor and cuts down on the sharpness. It's well worth the time! Try it, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F Cut off the very top of the garlic clove (about 1/4") so that the tops of most of the cloves are exposed slightly. Coat with a little olive oil and wrap securely in tin foil. Roast garlic in oven for 1 hour. Remove and allow to cool.
  • Using your fingers, squeeze the soft, roasted garlic out of each clove into food processor. Rinse and drain cooked or canned chickpeas. Add them, and all other ingredients, to the food processor and blend until completely smooth.
  • Scrape ingredients off sides of food processor to make sure it blends evenly. If you find that the hummus is too thick, you can add additional olive oil at this time. Add it very slowly, allowing the mixture to combine fully before adding more liquid.
  • Serve at room temperature with crudites, warm pita or crackers.
  • Optional: Sprinkle with chopped parsley or paprika before serving.

    I made this for our Christmas party the other night. It was very good. Like others I had to add more flavor. Needs more roasted garlic, oil, lemon zest and juice, pepper and more salt. Taste as you go. Our vegan friends loved it.
