Ingredients
2 cups of cooked chickpeas
1-4 garlic bulbs
2 tablespoons tahini
4 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup warm water
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)

Directions

Part I – Baking the Garlic

1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Cut the top 1/4 inch off of the garlic bulbs, exposing the tops of the garlic cloves inside.
Pour a bit of olive oil over each bulb and then place them in a oven safe dish.
Bake garlic for 35-45 minutes, or until light browning can be seen on exposed garlic bulbs.
3. Let cool.
4. Using your fingers, squeeze the individual garlic cloves out from the bulb.

Part II – Making Hummus

1. If the cooked chickpeas came from a can, be sure to rinse them well.
2. Add all ingredients to food processor or blender. (Feel free to also just mash extremely well if you are willing to sacrifice the smoothness of your hummus).
3. Serve at room temperature.

Hummus Tips:

Hummus stores well – make it in large quantities on one day and refrigerate for use throughout the week.

Hummus can be a condiment. Use on top of sandwiches instead of mayonnaise.

Spice it up! Put hummus in a wrap and eat with your favorite hot sauce.
