Hummus is a Middle Eastern dip typically made with chickpeas, tahini, and other flavorings. The possibilities for added flavors are quite a few. Here I’ve added a combination of roasted garlic and granulated garlic to create a hummus with an extra garlic kick. This recipe makes enough to feed up to 10 people. Goes well with 100% whole wheat pita chips and works great as a party appetizer.
- 1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 2 garlic heads
- three 15 ounce cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon honey or agave
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 2 teaspoons granulated onion
- 4 teaspoons granulated garlic
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes or to taste
- 1/2 cup tahini
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Smear 1 teaspoon of olive oil over garlic heads to cover. Cover with foil and let roast until tender for about an hour or so. Take out and let cool. When cool enough to handle, squeeze out the garlic from the heads. Set aside.
- Add roasted garlic and all other ingredients to food processer. Process until smooth. Enjoy with pita chips!
