Roasted Garlic Hummus

Roasted Garlic Hummus

This dip utilizes Roasted Garlic, a recipe that I shared a few weeks ago. The garlicis combined with some other very healthy ingredients, and it tastes amazing!  It's versatile; serve it as a dip with fresh veggies or toasted pita wedges, and equally tasty as a sandwich spread. The fact that you can whip it up in just a few minutes is a bonus. 

1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed

1 Tablespoon roasted garlic

2 Tablespoons tahini paste

Grated zest and juice of one medium lemon

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Salt, to taste

Place the beans, garlic, tahini, lemon juice and zest in a food processor and blend until smooth.  Slowly stream in the olive oil (add more for a thinner consistency.)  Add salt to taste.

Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow the flavors to marry.
