The ingredients for Roasted Garlic Hummus

ROASTED GARLIC

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.

Here’s what you can expect if you’re roasting garlic for the first time: the garlic will lose its pungent aroma and become nutty in flavour, and it’ll soften up and become almost creamy when you scoop the cooked flesh out of each clove.

ADD-INS

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.
