Roasted Garlic Hummus

Roasted Garlic Hummus: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

When my kids requested some homemade hummus I was happy to look through my recipes and make one. However, when looking at my recipes I realized that they all were spicy. So, I decided it was time to make a roasted garlic hummus.

The result was a delicious hummus with nice garlic flavor. Prefect for dipping vegetables in or you favorite cracker.

Roasted Garlic Hummus


  • 1 large head garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2- 15 ounce cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoons chickpea liquid, from the can

Cooking Directions

  1. Place the oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 400ยบ F.
  2. Peel away the outer layer of the garlic head, making sure to leave the head intact. Cut about 1/2 inch slice off the top of the head of garlic exposing all of the cloves. Discard the cut off top.
  3. Set the garlic on a piece of foil big enough to completely wrap around and cover the garlic.
  4. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the top of the garlic head and wrap the garlic head in the foil. Set the foil wrapped garlic on an oven safe pan and roast for 40 minutes, or until the garlic has completely softened and golden brown.
  5. Carefully unwrap the garlic and allow to cool.
  6. In a food processor, add the chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice and cayenne.
  7. Take the cooled garlic and squeeze it from the bottom to push out the roasted garlic into the food processor. Puree until smooth.
  8. With the food processor running add 3-4 tablespoons of chickpea liquid until desired consistency is reached.
  9. Transfer the hummus to a container, cover and refrigerate overnight.
