Brett introduced me to the joys of roasted garlic.  After slow roasting a few giant garlic heads in the oven, we would pick out the roasted cloves and spread them straight onto a slice of crusty bread.  Major garlic breath followed, but it was so so worth it.
Flash forward to this roasted garlic hummus recipe which uses a quick sheet-pan technique to roast the cloves right in the heads of garlic.  Blended with cooked chickpeas, smoky paprika, and bright fresh lemon juice, this hummus is a rich and flavorful dip or spread.

What’s In This Roasted Garlic Hummus Recipe?

  • Garlic – a whole head!  Slice in half, roast in the oven, and blend into the hummus.  Roasting the garlic gives it a sweet and almost smokey flavor. Which goes perfectly with…
  • Cumin: another delicious layer to this hummus.  A deep and bright spice.
  • Red Chili Flakes: for a little extra heat. If you find pepper flakes to be too hot, you can leave them out.
  • Garlic Salt: Because we are #TeamGarlic over here!  You can use regular salt, but adding garlic salt really ups the flavor.
  • Lemon Juice: freshly squeezed, if possible!
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: to drizze on top, for a lush finish.

How Do I Make This Roasted Garlic Hummus Recipe?

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. place the two halves of the garlic on a sheet pan.  Roast the garlic in the oven for 30 minutes, until the cloves turn a golden brown. Using a fork, carefully pick out the roasted garlic cloves from the head.
  2. Add roasted garlic cloves and the rest of the hummus ingredients to a food processor or high speed blender.
  3. Pulse on low and increase speed.  Blend until hummus is a smooth consistency. Serve with crudite, pita chips, or as a spread on a sandwich or wrap.
