Our ROASTED GARLIC HUMMUS is one of the quickest party snacks you’ll ever make, and perhaps the tastiest one too!

I always keep a few cans of chickpeas in my cupboard so I can zip up this recipe at a moment’s notice. I like to think of this ROASTED GARLIC HUMMUS as my go-to, win-win party snack; not only is it popular, but it’s also easy to make.

Here’s why it always works!

Ingredients for Roasted Garlic Hummus


I bet you already have the ingredients to make this recipe. Failing that, all are available at your local grocer. Next time you head out shopping, might as well pick up a few extra cans of chickpeas, because you’ll be making this dip again and again.

Roasted Garlic Bulb


One of the things I most love about this homemade hummus recipe is the inclusion of a ROASTED GARLIC BULB. If you’ve never roasted garlic before, here’s your chance – head HERE for the specifics on preparing this key ingredient.

If you’re roasting garlic for the first time, you’ll see how loses its pungent aroma and becomes nutty in flavour. It also softens up and becomes almost creamy as you scoop the cooked flesh out of each clove.

Flavour boosters for Roasted Garlic Hummus


For this recipe, I added sun-dried tomatoes because of how they pair perfectly with the chickpeas and roasted garlic. That said, you can also experiment with other tasty add-ins like olives, artichokes, roasted bell peppers, avocado, edamame, jalapeño peppers or even capers. The sky’s the limit on this versatile recipe.

Roasted Garlic Hummus


Once you prepare your ROASTED GARLIC HUMMUS, transfer it into a bowl, garnish with a few chickpeas, a drizzle of EVOO and a sprinkle of chopped parsley. You can serve it up with assorted vegetables, crackers and flatbread. It’s perfect as a pre-dinner snack or for a cocktail party. It’s also welcome as a healthy afternoon snack.

Fair warning friends – this dip seems to disappear in no time.
