Roasted. Garlic. Hummus. Do I even need to say anything else...? YUM!
- 1 Tin of chickpeas ( 240g plus the liquid)
- 2 cloves of garlic ( Peeled)
- 2 tbsp tahini paste
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 1⁄2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Salt to taste
1 - Preheat the oven to 180C. Once hot, place the garlic on a baking tray and roast
for 10 minutes.
2- Meanwhile, drain the tin of chickpeas, keeping half of the liquid for later. Place
them into a medium bowl.
3 - Add the tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, roasted garlic, salt and the remaining liquid from the chickpea can.
4 - Blitz all the ingredients with a hand blender until smooth. Have a taste and add more salt if needed.
Serve it on a plate with some vegetables cut into sticks.
Leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 5 to 6 days!
As for the side veggies, you can use any vegetables you want! I personally love to use raw veggies, here are some of my favourite ones: cucumber, pepper, celery, and carrots.
For a change of flavour, add some herb (eg coriander), spice (eg paprika), or even spicy veggies like sun-dried tomatoes, caramelised onion, or roasted peppers!
As for the consistency: if the hummus gets too thick, add the rest of the chickpea liquid or
some water until the desired consistency is reached.
Equipment: if you don't have a hand blender, just use a normal one.
