Roasted Garlic Hummus

I like hummus, but I prefer it flavored in some way rather than plain old mushed chickpeas.  I could really eat it with pita every single day and do pretty often.  I also like it on sandwiches in place of mayonnaise, but I must confess, I probably only ever eat it because chickpeas are amazingly nutritious.

I served this with dolma homemade whole wheat pita, and tabouleh.


4 c. cooked chickpeas

1 head of garlic

1/2 tsp. salt

Extra virgin olive oil


Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Cut the  head of garlic in half.

Place in foil or a heat proof, covered baking dish.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Cover and roast for 30 minutes.

Place beans, garlic, and salt in the bowl of a food processor.

Puree until smooth.  Serve.
