Cumin and Roasted Garlic Hummus

Making hummus at home is wiser than buy it. Think about it – this way it’s easier to have control over the ingredients you use. Also, the preservatives found in store-bought versions are limited to the minimum at home.

Ingredients

1 large garlic head
salt
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
2 cups of canned chickpeas
2 tablespoons of tahini
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 teaspoon cumin powder
black pepper
salt

Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 360⁰F/180⁰C.
  2. Cut the top of the garlic head to expose the cloves. Add the garlic cloves to a small baking dish. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and salt, then move to the oven and roast for 30 minutes. You can also roast the garlic in a pocket of foil.
  3. Remove garlic cloves from the oven and let them cool to room temperature. Squeeze the roasted garlic out of skins and add them to a food processor.
  4. Add the canned chickpeas, tahini, remaining olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, salt, and pepper. Start pulsing. Add water gradually and continue to pulse until you reach the desired consistency.
