Creamy Roasted Garlic Hummus
This Creamy Roasted Garlic hummus is full of flavor! It has an entire bulb of roasted garlic, copious tahini and extra virgin olive oil and a bright pop of Middle Eastern flavor from pungent Za'atar spice! Bonus is it's really easy to make.
- 1 bulb garlic split in half, roasted and skinned
- 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 30 oz chickpeas (2 cans) drained
- ⅓ cup pourable sesame tahini
- 2 lemons juiced
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tbsp za'atar
First, roast the garlic. To do this, split an entire bulb of garlic in half with the peel on. Place in the middle of a 8x8 square of aluminum foil and drizzle with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Fold the sides up to enclose the garlic and oil in a package so that It all stays inside. Place the package in a pan to ensure the oil will not drip inside your oven and cause a fire. Bake at 400 for 30-40 minutes until the garlic is soft and golden. remove from oven and let cool.
Next, once garlic is cool, open the cans and drain the chickpeas. Place them in the blender.
Remove the roasted garlic's skin by simply squeezing the bulbs. All of the cloves should exit the skins easily that way. Then add the roasted garlic to the blender.
Add the lemon, tahini, 3 tbsp olive oil and salt
Blend until smooth and creamy.
Top with 1 tbsp extra drizzle of olive oil and za'atar spice
