Easy Roasted Garlic Hummus Recipe! Super creamy, easily oil free, healthy and protein rich. Made with simple ingredients, chickpeas, roasted garlic, aquafaba, tahini, lemon juice, zest, sesame oil and spices.
Hummus is a classic vegan dip and there is always some on the go in my fridge! It’s creamy, garlicy and delicious. My youngest granddaughter loves the stuff!!❤️
No need to buy Sabra brand folks, my homemade roasted garlic hummus is better! I could eat it everyday with warm naan or pita! OMG so good!
I would say my Roasted Garlic Hummus is pretty authentic (with a twist or two ?). I use canned chickpeas they're a great time saver and aquafaba (chickpea brine) instead of oil. I also love adding lemon zest for a little extra zing.
I have a few different hummus recipes that I will share in the future but I thought I’d start with my everyday traditional basic hummus.
I don’t use fresh garlic for my hummus. I prefer roasted. Roasting the garlic mellows it where as fresh is very strong and sharp. Feel free to garnish with fresh if you’d like a bit of both!
How to Roast Garlic for Hummus:
PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 400°
Slice 1/2 inch of the top of a whole head of garlic. Keeping it intact. Place garlic cut side up on a piece of tin foil. Drizzle with olive oil ( if using) and a pinch of salt and pepper over the top. Wrap up the garlic and roast for 45 minutes.
When done remove the garlic cloves by gently squeezing out the garlic: Hold bottom and squeeze cloves out of the cut side. Use in your hummus recipe.
How to make Roasted Garlic Hummus:
Add chickpeas, roasted garlic, tahini, lemon juice and zest, sesame oil (omit for oil free), spices and aquafaba (chickpea brine) to your food processor. Process until smooth.
Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkling of sumac and or paprika, chopped roasted and or fresh garlic and fresh parsley. Enjoy!
