Have you ever had hummus before? Hummus is Middle Eastern dip made from cooked chickpeas, olive oil, tahini and lemon juice. My version here is slightly different. You must love garlic for this hummus.
I love roasted garlic and I always loved roasted garlic hummus, so I roasted 3 whole garlic heads, which is very easy to do if you’ve never roasted garlic before. You first cut the top of the cloves off and place them in aluminum foil with the cut part on top, drizzle with some olive oil and salt and place them in the oven and roast for about 20 minutes at 400 F degrees. That’s all there is to it.
- 3 whole garlic heads
- 1 19 ounce can chickpeas, drained
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp peanut butter
- 3 tbsp water
- juice from one lemon
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- salt to taste
- fresh chives for garnish
- extra olive oil for roasting garlic
