Roasted garlic gives this Roasted Garlic Hummus recipe a delicious depth of flavor. It's perfect for a party or as an appetizer! I like to serve it with pita chips, but it would also be good with veggies like carrots or celery. If you're looking for a healthier option, you could even use whole wheat pita chips. This Roasted Garlic Hummus recipe is really easy to make, and it's always a hit with my guests!


1 large head of garlic
3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 15-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
3 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
⅓ cup tahini
3 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon cayenne
pepper Sea salt, to taste


Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the top off the garlic head and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Wrap in aluminum foil and place in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool for a few minutes.

  • Add remaining olive oil, chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, water, ground cumin, and cayenne pepper to a blender or food processor. Once cool, remove roasted garlic cloves from the outer skin and add them to the container. 
  • Season with sea salt, to taste, and blend until smooth. Add more water, if necessary, to achieve desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired.
    4 Transfer to a serving dish and drizzle with high-quality extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of smoked paprika. Serve immediately with fresh vegetables and Kalamata olives.
