  • 3-4 tbsp. water***
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Roasted Garlic:
  • Preheat oven 400 degrees.
  • Remove outer loose skin from garlic heads and cut top to expose cloves.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and rub across the cloves with finger tips to get all coated.
  • Place garlic heads on aluminum foil and wrap loosely**
  • Then place on baking sheet in preheated oven.
  • Bake about 40 minutes until soft and slightly browned.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile place chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and garlic(from 2 roasted heads), olive oil and water in food processor.
  • Blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer to serving bowl
  • Optional toppings:
  • Additional roasted garlic, drizzle of olive oil, paprika

Notes

* I roasted 3 heads of garlic so I could have some for topping
** I wrapped the heads in parchment paper and then the aluminum foil (this is optional)
***you want to gradually add the water. I started with 2 tbsp. but ended up adding 4 tbsp.
