~ Easy Roasted Garlic Hummus ~

The longest part of this Easy Roasted Garlic Hummus is actually roasting the garlic.  The rest?  Forget about it!  The roasted garlic gives a lovely little hum of garlic flavour to this ultra creamy, homemade hummus.

So, question of the day – do you like garlic?  Me? I LOVE it! I may be a bit weird when it comes to garlic (actually, I know I am).  So, confession time – I actually like the smell of garlic on my fingers after handling it.  Yes, you read that right.  I like it.  Isn’t it actually funny to think of me going around the kitchen smelling my stinky garlic hands😳  Not like it’s flowers or anything, but I digress…….

PREPARATION

Have you roasted garlic before? It definitely softens the flavour of the cloves, that’s for sure.  But, you know what?  I think I could pop these like candy.  Weird fact #2.  Just add it to the list, ok 😉 ?

Do you know what gives this hummus its ultra creamy texture?  Removing the skins on those chickpeas.  Ever since I made this Chipotle Lime Hummus a while ago, I’ve been taking that outer layer off.  It’s completely optional, though.  I mean you don’t have to do it, but you don’t have to work out either🏃🏻‍♀️💪🏼But, don’t you feel better when you do??  This may take a few minutes, but totally worth it.  Grab a buddy, maybe a beverage, and get peelin’.

Once your garlic is roasted (which you can even do the day before) and your chickpeas are naked, throw it all in the food processor and get blending.

Like I said, roasting the garlic makes it less pungent so when you taste it in this hummus, there’s just a little hum.  However, if you want your garlic to punch you in the face so to speak, feel free to add some minced raw garlic to the party.  I would suggest no more than one clove, but do what make your belly happy!

Garnish this hummus to your tastes or not at all.  I garnished with some pesto and sunflower seeds and it worked wonderfully.

This Easy Roasted Garlic Hummus works lovely with toasted naan, carrot sticks or, of course, chips.  Go wild and have all three👍  It’s also pretty awesome as a substitute for mayo on a burger or sandwich!

Instructions
Roasted Garlic
  1. To roast garlic - slice top of garlic bulb so all cloves are exposed. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and 1/2 tsp of olive oil. Wrap in foil and bake on 400F for 35-40 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and carefully open from foil. You may want to wait a few minutes for it to cool before removing cloves from skin.
Hummus
  1. Place chickpeas in food processor, along with salt, pepper, tahini, stock, lemon juice, and chili pepper. Blend until smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Stop to scrape sides of processor, as necessary.
  2. Next add roasted garlic cloves and olive oil. Blend another 1-2 minutes. Pour into bowl and garnish with pesto and sunflower seeds, if using. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

On the outside of the chickpeas there's a thin, almost translucent, layer.  Gently squeeze the chickpea between your thumb and pointer finger and the chickpea kind of 'pops' out of the skin.  If you are pressed for time, this is totally optional, but does make for a creamier consistency.

    Sooo good! And we have naan so that’s perfect. We love garlic I’m just not sure I like garlicky hands though lol. I know Red makes hummus but I’m pretty sure it’s not the roasted garlic kind. I’d have to fix that 🙂

    I absolutely love hummus on crispy naan bread. This recipe sound amazing. I could eat this plain…without crisy naan or crackers. Garlic adds such a great flavour to the hummus.
    Defintely saving this delicious recipe!

    LOVELOVELOVE garlic–not so much the smell it leaves on my hands though, haha! My cousin and I once were banned from making our family clam dip for a whole year because we added too much garlic and no one would eat it but the two of us. And roasted garlic? Forget it. Just gimme allllll the roasted garlic and no one gets hurt. LOVE this hummus, Dawn! Have a great weekend!

Happy Thursday to ya! Hoping your weekend is wonderful! xo

    Garlic is my favorite seasoning to cook with, hands down. I use it in most everything, and I would bake with it if I could haha! Garlic hummus is my absolute favorite and you are reminding me that it’s been way too long since I’ve made my own. Wish I could dig into that bowl. Pinned! Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Miriam says:

    Absolutely LOVE garlic, I could just add it to anything (apart from desserts of course :-)) Would love to use it more during the week as well but with meetings etc. it is not always possible … Your hummus looks absolutely delicious, sure I’d be able to eat a whole bucket full 🙂 Have a fantastic weekend, Dawn!

    I totally am with you on popping off the chickpea skins! So worth the extra time & effort. Garlic reminds me of my grandma’s house, because she was always cooking and her house always smelled like garlic. I like it, but not quite as much as you haha I usually only use one or two cloves in dishes because if it’s too strong I’m not a fan!
