Roasted Garlic Hummus: No Tahini
I love hummus and have always wanted to make my own. But the one thing I never have in the house is tahini. This is a staple ingredient in traditional hummus and creates that super creamy taste and texture. But after doing a little research I realized that people sub in other things for the tahini in a pinch so I thought about not using it at all and going with a slightly less smooth texture.
The biggest part of the flavor of this hummus was using roasted garlic that I baked the day before. I will link the recipe here so that you can also use fresh roasted garlic in the recipe. It gives it a rich and savory flavor and it was so fragrant and delicious when used in this recipe!
1 whole bulb of garlic, roasted
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 can of organic garbanzo beans
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- In a food processor add in garbanzo beans and roasted garlic. Pour in half of the olive oil. Pulse on high until all beans are somewhat chopped up.
- Pour in the rest of the olive oil and pulse on high again until beans are all combined with oil.
- Add in a pinch of salt and fresh lemon juice and pulse again to blend until totally combined. The garlic will be creamy but not totally smooth.
