Ingredients

  • 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
  • GARNISH:
  • Minced fresh parsley
  • Minced roasted garlic
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • Sprinkle of sumac or cayenne pepper optional

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

** Recipe adapted from Cooking Classy
** 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.
