Prep Time5 mins

Servings: 4 servings
- 1 large head roasted garlic recipe below
- 2 Tbsp olive oil preferably extra virgin
- 1 oz can chick peas drained and rinsed, 15
- 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 3 Tbsp tahini paste
- 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
- tsp scant 1/4 ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp fresh rosemary minced
- 2 - 3 Tbsp water
- Minced fresh parsley
- Minced roasted garlic
- Drizzle of olive oil
- Sprinkle of sumac or cayenne pepper optional
To a food processor add chick peas, lemon juice, tahini paste, salt, cumin and rosemary, and pulse for about 1 minute.
Scrape down sides and bottom of food processor, add about 3/4 of the roasted garlic, (set the rest aside to mince for garnish). Pulse until combined.
While the food processor is on, stream in 2 Tbsp olive oil and 2-3 Tbsp water. 3 Tbsp will yield a slightly thinner hummus and 2 Tbsp will yield a slightly thicker hummus. I usually use between 2-3. Pulse until desired smoothness is reached.
To serve, place hummus in a dish, make slight indentations and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with desired garnishes and serve with fresh pita, naan, pita chips or vegetables.
Keep refrigerated in an airtight container.

** if your food processor doesn't allow for streaming liquids in while it's running, you can add the oil, pulse to combine, then add the water and pulse again.
