Roasted Garlic Hummus - In Yellow Bowl Garnished with Pine Nuts
Hummus is one of those things that you will never buy from the store again after you make it at home.  It’s just so absurdly easy to do yourself, and then you can make it to taste and liking.  Aside from the roasted garlic here, hummus doesn’t need to take more than 5 minutes tops to make. The directions are pretty much this: Puree some stuff in a food processor.  Then eat it.  Pretty simple if you ask me.  Here is my favorite hummus to make:
Cut your garlic bulbs in half:

Whole Head of Garlic Cut in Half

Rub with olive oil, then roast until tender.

Roasted Garlic Heads in Foil

Place the roasted garlic bulbs, chickpeas, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and water in a food processor and process until smooth.
