Roasted Garlic Hummus Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 45 minutes


2 Whole Heads Garlic

2 tsp Olive Oil Extra Virgin

15 ounce Can Chickpeas Drained, or 1 and 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas

2 Tbsp Lemon Juice Freshly Squeezed

1/3 cup Tahini (80g)

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Cumin

2 Tbsp Olive Oil Extra Virgin

4 Tbsp Cold Water

For Serving (Optional):

Smoked Paprika

Fresh Chopped Parsley

Sesame Seeds

Olive Oil Extra Virgin

Pita Breads

Raw Veggies


1Start by roasting the garlic. Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C)

2Remove just the outer flaky layers of the two heads of garlic, leaving the inner skins intact. Using a knife chop off just the tips of each clove. Place in tinfoil and pour over 1 tsp of olive oil for each head of garlic and rub it around the sides so that the garlic is covered with the oil. Wrap them up in the tinfoil, place on a parchment lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 35 minutes. When cooked, remove from the tinfoil, allow to cool for a few minutes until they're cool enough to handle and then pop the cloves out into a bowl using your fingers.

3Make the hummus. Add the chickpeas, roasted garlic, lemon juice, tahini and 2 Tbsp of the cold water to the food processor. Process until chunky. Now add the salt, cumin, olive oil and remaining 2 Tbsp of cold water and process until smooth and creamy.

4Serve topped with a sprinkle of smoked paprika, chopped parsley, sesame seeds and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Add raw veggies and pita breads on the side for dipping.
