Have you ever had hummus before? Hummus is Middle Eastern dip made from cooked chickpeas, olive oil, tahini and lemon juice. My version here is slightly different. You must love garlic for this hummus.
I love roasted garlic and I always loved roasted garlic hummus, so I roasted 3 whole garlic heads, which is very easy to do if you’ve never roasted garlic before. You first cut the top of the cloves off and place them in aluminum foil with the cut part on top, drizzle with some olive oil and salt and place them in the oven and roast for about 20 minutes at 400 F degrees. That’s all there is to it.
Once the garlic is roasted, it’s easy to just squeeze or pop the garlic out, right into the food processor where you add the remaining ingredients. My secret ingredient here is not tahini, but peanut butter. Trust me on this one, the hummus is amazing. I also cut down on the olive oil quite a bit, added lots of lemon juice and some cayenne pepper for a bite and this hummus just might be the best hummus you ever ate.
