Roasted Garlic Hummus – a delicious, easy roasted garlic hummus recipe that is packed with flavor and makes a great appetizer!


  • 1 16oz can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 roasted head of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons extra light olive oil
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, more to taste
  • 23 tablespoons water, more as-needed


  1. Roast Garlic: wrap 1-2 garlic bulbs in aluminum foil or parchment paper with olive oil, butter, and kosher salt and place in the oven (40-45 min at 400 degrees) – see full directions here.  Let cool and remove the garlic cloves of at least one whole bulb (option to add more, if you want).
  2. Blend: combine chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, tahini, salt and water in a blender or food processor.  Blend until smooth.
  3. Option to thin it out: Add additional water to thin (1 tablespoon at a time) and blend until you have reached your desired consistency. Taste and add any additional salt, as needed.
  4. Serve with fresh vegetables and pita bread for dipping or add to your favorite sandwich or salad!


  • Garlic – we love the added flavor of roasted garlic, but you could also just toss in some minced garlic if you don’t have time to roast it.
  • Storage – place hummus in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to one week.
