Garlic Hummus


I love hummus, I eat it at least once a week. This week it was roasted garlic hummus – the garlic turns magically sweet when it is roasted. I roast a few extra cloves so I have some on hand to spread on bread or add to dip.

2 heads of garlic
2 can chickpeas, rinsed
1/4 c olive oil
2 TBSP sesame seeds, toasted
1/2 – 1 c water
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 tsp salt
Cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 375.

Slice the top off the garlic, place on aluminum foil, drizzle with olive oil and wrap tightly. Roast for 1 hour.

Remove garlic cloves and toss in blender with remaining ingredients, and 1/2 c water. Purée, add more water 1 TBSP at a time until smooth.

Top with a little cayenne pepper and serve.
