Hi there and I hope everyone has been enjoying their week thus far.
Nothing special going on around here…Well other than this Easy Roasted Garlic Hummus.
And in case I haven’t shared this yet, Hummus just happens to be one of my all time favorite snacks.
Now even though you can buy some pretty okay Ready made hummus…there is just absolutely nothing and I mean NOTHING better than the homemade stuff.
But not a basic hummus recipe and maybe basic isn’t a good word for this so forgive me.
Cause anytime you have some roasted garlic involved you’re moving a little beyond basic.
Okay, so maybe I’m rambling along a little too much. But I wanted you to have a true understanding of how ultimately awesome this Easy Roasted Garlic Hummus is.
And if you’re a garlic lover like me then garlic is pretty much standard in most things you make.
And since I’m sharing one of my favorite dips with you it should be okay to ramble a little bit..Right?
So seriously though you have to roast some garlic and make this stuff.
Roasting garlic is really easy to do and it also makes your house smell amazing..and I mean who doesn’t like garlic?
As much as I love the flavor of raw garlic…And I do incorporate it in my diet as much as possible for the flavor and health benefits.
When you roast garlic it’s just a whole different flavor sensation, milder creamy and just plain delicious.
