Roasted Garlic Hummus
(Roasted Garlic, 30 minutes. Hummus, 10 minutes)
- 10-12 Large Cloves Garlic
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1 Can Garbanzo Beans (Chickpeas)
- 2 Tablespoons Tahini
- 3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
- 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1/2 Cup Garbanzo Bean Juice
- 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 Teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
- 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel garlic and place on a sheet of tinfoil sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Drizzle olive oil over garlic cloves, dust with salt and pepper. Wrap tinfoil around garlic and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Drain garbanzo beans, reserving juice for use in hummus. Add one can of drained garbanzo beans to blender or food processor. Add roasted garlic, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic powder, and 1/4 cup of juice reserved from garbanzo beans. Blend until smooth and creamy, adding more garbanzo bean juice as needed to get the consistency you like. Add salt and pepper and blend.
Chill and serve with toasted pita bread or fresh vegetables. It also makes a great sandwich spread with hamburgers or Triple B Beef. Great with beer and a football game!
