Ingredients

  • 1 can garbanzo beans (14.5 ounces, rinsed and drained)
  • 2 heads roasted garlic
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons tahini
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice (Juice of 1/2 lemon)
  • 1/4 cup water (more or less, to desired consistency)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or more, to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon oregano
  • optional garnishes: sliced olives, pine nuts, roasted red peppers, fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor.
  2. Puree/ process to combine. I usually process for 1.5 to 2 minutes. (Tip:If you want extra creamy hummus, you can go longer from 3 to 4 minutes until it is whipped looking.)

  3. Taste to see if you want to add any additional salt.

  4. Add extra water or oil to thin out the hummus, if desired, and process a few more seconds to combine.

  5. Transfer to serving dish, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle oregano.

  6. Garnish with additional toppings, if desired. Suggestions: pine nuts, fresh parsley, chopped olives, roasted red peppers, feta cheese crumbles, etc.

Recipe Notes

Nutritional information is approximate and was calculated using a recipe nutrition label generator. Serving size is approximately 2 Tablespoons.

Salt will vary, based on the saltiness of your beans. Always taste, and add more if it tastes bland. I recommend tasting it on the same thing you will be serving them with. For example, you may need less salt if your pita chips are salty.

Refrigerate leftovers for up to a week.

If you prep your roasted garlic ahead of time, this recipe is much faster. I like to roast my garlic when I already have my oven on for something else, if possible. Then I keep the roasted garlic in the fridge until I am ready to make this.

If you are making this recipe for more than 6 people, I would probably recommend doubling the recipe. Use the slider to adjust the number of serving to double. I always like to have more than enough when entertaining, and leftovers of this are great!
