Roasted Garlic Hummus

Roasted Garlic Hummus

Have I mentioned how much a love my food processor?  This thing is a champ!  I make almond butter every week now and hummus is next to join the line up.  It is so simple!! And buying hummus with tons of preservatives for 5 bucks is getting old.  Matt and I absolutely LOVE roasted garlic.  Now you have to really love that garlic flavor to get into this hummus and you will need some gum after if you have any plans at all after consumption… but it is SO WORTH IT!  One thing that was hard to track down for me to make hummus was tahini.  My local Ralph’s didn’t have it, Trader Joe’s was a no go, but Von’s was my savior!  I got a big tub of it and now I can make hummus non stop!!  It is so easy to throw together and also easy to change up the recipe when you want a new flavor.  I can’t wait to try a few that I have been dreaming of!

The key to getting super creamy hummus is to first put the tahini and lemon juice in the food processor and let it go for a minute or two.  This will whip up the tahini so when you add the garbanzo beans they just melt into creamy goodness!  I love eating hummus with carrots or these tasty Ak Mak crackers from TJs.  I used to be scared of them because they are really healthy and super whole grain (and that used to scare me?) but they are so tasty!!  The sesame seeds on them go perfectly with the hummus!  I have yet to find a pretzel that doesn’t have tons of ingredients I can’t pronounce, but usually I love pretzels with hummus too.
