Roasted Garlic Hummus

by Kris on April 14, 2011

I’m not going to lie, I have an addiction to condiments. As a Canadian, my love of mayo, gravy and all things saucy is just in my blood. I can’t imagine a world without dipping sauce for pizza, gravy for fries and seasonings for popcorn.

One of my favourite dips is hummus, but I absolutely can’t stand the pre-packaged stuff at the grocery store. It’s always over priced, full of preservatives, and because of that it never tastes right. Making it at home is so easy and a lot healthier. Hummus is full of protein and tastes great on fresh veggies, pita bread or even as a condiment on your favourite wrap, salad or sandwich. Using roasted garlic instead of raw garlic makes the flavours more complex and less harsh which is always welcomed by those around you. Enjoy!

1 15 oz can Garbanzo Beans, drained and rinsed
1 roasted garlic bulb; about 10 cloves
1/4 cup roasted garlic olive oil
1/4 cup tahini
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Juice from one lemon
1/4 cup water

In a food processor combine garbanzo beans, roasted garlic and oil, tahini, salt, cayenne pepper, lemon juice and water. Pulse until smooth.

Place in a re-sealable container and refrigerate until cold.

Serve with pita’s, fresh veggies or as a condiment.

That beautiful photo makes me want to try this – I love the colors (I’m assuming you could use dried beans too … I’ve got a whole bunch of those). You have some really great photos and recipes on the site … but it took a moment for me to find where to leave you a comment … you may find more people will notice if you write something near the number … just an idea.

You could definitely use dried beans! I just had canned ones on hand. Thanks for your suggestion. I will consider it.

I love hummus, and this one with roasted garlic sounds terrific. The photograph says it all, and really makes you want to make this wonderful dip. I have saved the recipe, and will try it after the Passover holiday. Thanks for sharing.
