What You Will Need
- head of garlic – just follow our simple tutorial on how to roast garlic – so easy!
- canned chickpeas – the traditional base ingredient for any homemade hummus recipe.
- lemon juice – a splash of acidity to help amplify all the great flavors.
- extra virgin olive oil – perfect for giving your hummus that smooth texture.
- tahini – another classic ingredient for making hummus! You should be able to find it at your local grocery stores.
- kosher salt – just a pinch for a bit of added seasoning.
- water – only needed if your hummus is a bit thick – just add water, a little at a time, to help thin out your hummus to the perfect consistency.
How To Make Roasted Garlic Hummus
First, you can begin making this easy hummus recipe by roasting your head of garlic in the oven. Once the garlic is almost done roasting, you can begin gathering your other ingredients.
Place all of these ingredients in a food processor or blender with the roasted garlic cloves.
Blend everything together on high for about 2-3 minutes or until it reaches a smooth consistency. Make sure you take breaks in the blending to scrape down the sides to ensure that everything is getting blended.
Serve any way you want! We love to place a few more roasted garlic cloves on top because you can never go wrong with more garlic!
How Should I Serve Roasted Garlic Hummus
There are so many great ways to serve an easy homemade hummus recipe! We love to use it on our favorite pita sandwich, a veggie sandwich, or any of your favorite wrap recipes. You could also add a dollop of this hummus to any of your favorite salads. Personally, our family loves it best as a dip for snacks! It goes great with baby carrots, celery, bell peppers, pita bread, etc.
- garlic – the garlic in this recipe doesn’t have to be roasted in the oven, you could also you garlic confit or just plain minced garlic. Roasted garlic just takes it to a whole other level!
- tahini – if your grocery store doesn’t have tahini or you don’t want to use it, simply replace it with almond butter instead!
- storage – place the hummus in an airtight glass container in the fridge for up to one week.
- freezing – you can store hummus in the freezer for up to 3 months. It will need to thaw in the fridge overnight and then it might need another splash of water or lemon juice to revive the texture.
