Hummus is easy to make at home, and is a great snack to keep on hand in the fridge! This simple version is made with roasted garlic to bump up the flavor to new heights.
1head of garlic
16ozcan chickpeasdrained and rinsed
pine nutsfor garnish
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut the head of garlic in half (through the equator), and pour 1 tsp olive oil onto each of the cut halves. Rub the oil in with your fingers. Wrap each half tightly with aluminum foil, then bake for 30 minutes until fork tender.
Place the roasted garlic bulbs, chickpeas, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and water in a food processor and process until smooth. If you want a thinner consistency, add a little bit more water. Serve with crisp vegetables or pita chips. Enjoy!
