3 cups


  • 1 head garlic

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 1 (19 ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained

  • ¼ cup tahini

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin, or more to taste

  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  3. Bake garlic in the preheated oven until softened, about 50 minutes.

  4. Squeeze garlic cloves out of their papery skins. Place garlic, chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, ground cumin, salt, and black pepper together in a blender. Cover and puree until smooth. Garnish with more cumin.
