Roasted Garlic Hummus

I wanted to bring dip and veggies to a Superbowl party yesterday.  I was tired of my go to Bobby Flay White bean, chipotle and roasted red pepper dip, and thought plain hummus might be too boring, so I decided to go with a roasted hummus garlic!  It was really good, but with all of the delicious roast beef sandwiches, homemade hot wings and french onion dip, people weren't too into getting all of their veggies!


3/4 head garlic
1- 25oz can garbanzo beans
2 Tbsp tahini
4 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Olive oil (to texture)
Chopped carrots, celery, cucumbers and red bell peppers for dipping.

Preheat the oven to 350

Cut the top of the head of garlic and drizzle with a little olive oil.  Wrap in tin foil and bake for about 50 minutes.

In a food processor add your beans, tahini, lemon and a few healthy dashes of salt and pepper.  Once the garlicd has cooled enough to handle, squeeze the roasted garlic into the food processor as well.

Begin processing, slowly adding olive oil as you go to get the hummus to the consistency you like.

Stop frequently to taste and reseason as needed.

Serve with assorted veggies.
