  • 3 whole heads garlic

  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas

  • 2 small lemons, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika

  • 3 (6 inch) whole wheat pita breads


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Slice the top off each head of garlic. Drizzle the cut ends with 1 tablespoon olive oil and wrap in foil.

  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes. Remove and let sit until cool enough to handle. Turn on the broiler.

  3. Reserve liquid from chickpeas. Rinse and drain chickpeas; transfer to a blender.

  4. Add 1/2 of the reserved chickpea liquid to the blender with lemon juice and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Squeeze in roasted garlic from 2 of the heads. Blend until creamy, adding more chickpea liquid if needed.

  5. Split pita rounds and cut into quarters. Place on a baking sheet.

  6. Place under the preheated broiler until crisp, 2 to 3 minutes.

  7. Place hummus into a bowl. Make a well in the center and squeeze roasted garlic from the remaining head into the well. Sprinkle with paprika. Serve with pitas.
