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.
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.
