  • Peel off the outer layers of the garlic bulb, leaving the cloves intact. Cut off and discard the top 1/4 of the bulb; drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil and wrap tightly in aluminum foil.

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

  • 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.

Cook's Note:

A food processor works equally as well as a blender for this recipe.

Very good! I suggest keeping some of the drained liquid from the chickpeas in case you need to thin the hummus a bit (I did need to). I also added a bit more lemon juice and salt than called for after tasting it to get it where I wanted it but that's just my preference. This was very easy to mix up and very tasty...I would make this again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
