~ 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…….
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!
See how easy it is to make your own hummus?? No need to purchase from the grocery store ever again. Plus, it’s creamy dreamy. Couldn’t you just face plant right into that?
Hope you love this Easy Roasted Garlic Hummus!
Until next time, take care and chit chat again soon. Have a FABULOUS food-filled weekend!
