Roasted Garlic Hummus | Blue Frost Acres

Roasted Garlic HummusWe love roasted garlic hummus. We serve it to guests who have never had traditional hummus or to those who don't care for tahini in hummus. It has a rich garlic flavor that is not overwhelming - it's just right.

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans (15 oz.)

  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano

  1. In a food processor, process beans, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and oregano until desired consistency. If hummus is too thick, simply add olive oil in small increments (1/2 teaspoon) until desired consistency.
  2. Serve roasted garlic hummus garnished with finely chopped parsley with hot pita bread, pita chips, or veggies. Roasted red pepper hummus goes very well with cubes of warm Italian bread.
