Roasted Garlic Hummus

Are you looking for some healthier apps for game day? In planning our Super Bowl Menu (b/c for me, it’s all about the food and commercials!), I thought this Roasted Garlic Hummus would make a perfect addition. I’m not a fan of beans in general, but I have found that I love hummus and other recipes with chickpeas. I also discovered with this recipe how easy it is to make hummus at home! Now the flavor combos are endless.

It may look a little bland and boring, but the roasted garlic makes this anything but!  Garlic takes on a whole new flavor dimension when roasted.

Roasted Garlic Hummus

Ingredients
  • 1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 bulb roasted garlic
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • Red pepper flakes/hot sauce/sriracha (to taste; optional)

Instructions
  1. Squeeze the garlic cloves from the bulb of roasted garlic.
  2. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Serve with additional red pepper flakes or hot sauce or sriracha on top.

I keep the spice down on mine since my middle child loves hummus too, but you can make this as spicy as you like.  Hummus makes a great dip for crackers and veggies, and is something I feel good about eating and serving.
