Roasted Garlic Hummus

Roasted Garlic Hummus

We love homemade hummus for a healthy, delicious snack and sometimes I have it for lunch too. This roasted garlic hummus recipe has a delicious mellow garlic flavor. If you want a more spicy hummus it’s easy to add more cayenne pepper.

Roasted Garlic Hummus Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head garlic
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 15-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon Watkins ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon Watkins cayenne pepper
  • Watkins Sea salt, to taste

Roasted Garlic Hummus Garnishes:

Kalamata olives.
High-quality extra virgin olive oil
Watkins paprika

Roasted Garlic Hummus Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the top off the garlic head and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Wrap in aluminum foil and place in a pre-heated oven for 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  2. Add remaining olive oil, chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, water, ground cumin, and cayenne pepper to a blender or food processor. Once cool, remove the roasted garlic cloves from the outer skin and add to the container. 
  3. Season with sea salt, to taste, and blend until smooth. Add more water, if necessary, to achieve desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired.
  4. Transfer to a serving dish and drizzle with high-quality extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika. Serve immediately with fresh vegetables, bread, and Kalamata olives. 

For a healthy gluten-free appetizer or snack prepare and serve fresh vegetables such as cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, celery, broccoli, and mushrooms.  If gluten or counting carbs isn’t an issue this hummus is delicious with pita bread, wraps, crisp bread, pretzels, or crackers. 

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
Serves: 4

Tip: To save time, roast the garlic in advance when using the over to prepare another dish. I love having roasted garlic on hand for a variety of dishes. It can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container covered in olive oil for up to one week or for several months in the freezer.
