This roasted garlic hummus is easy, delicious and healthy!
Nothing beats hummus when it comes to high protein, high fiber healthiness. With raw veggies for dipping, or flat breads if you like, hummus makes a great snack, or appetizer.
Roasted garlic is itself a dreamy thing. Roasting garlic takes all the bite out of garlic, leaving behind only the pure deliciousness of the garlic flavor.
Blended into hummus, roasted garlic takes regular hummus and catapults it up several notches on the yum scale!
I’m a big fan of hummus, which is why I’ve already made spicy hummus and pumpkin hummus and coming up soon is some roasted butternut hummus. Oh yeah! And when it comes to dips, you don’t want to forget about baba ganoush either!
You might think that using a whole head of roasted garlic in this roasted garlic hummus equals an intense garlic flavor but that isn’t the case.
The flavor is still subtle. It’s a rich flavor and it’s a delicious flavor, but it’s not at all overpowering. Just perfect really.
Roasting the garlic takes the bulk of time in this recipe, once the garlic is roasted, then it’s just a case of throwing everything into the food processor and a couple of minutes later you have hummus!
I really think you’re going to love this roasted garlic hummus recipe. It is:
- Delicious as a dip
- Infused with rich garlic flavor
- Perfectly balanced in flavor
- High protein and healthy
Keep any leftovers covered in the fridge and consume within a couple of days. Use it as a spread, a dip or a salad dressing!

- 1 15oz (425g) can Chickpeas
- 1 Head of Roasted Garlic
- 2 Tbsp Tahini
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- ½ Lemon (Squeezed)
- 1 tsp Oregano
- 1 Tbsp Water
- Sea Salt and Black Pepper (to taste)
- Sprinkle Paprika (for serving)
- Start by roasting the garlic. Preheat the oven to 430 degrees fahrenheit (220 degrees celsius)
- Remove just the outer flaky layers of the head of garlic, leaving the inner skins intact. Using a knife chop off just the tips of each clove. Place in tinfoil and pour over 1 tsp of olive oil and rub it around the sides so that the garlic is covered with the oil. Wrap it up in the tinfoil and bake in the oven for 35 minutes. When cooked, remove from the tinfoil, allow to cool for a few minutes and then pop out the cloves with your fingers. For a full tutorial of roasting garlic including pictures, see the post: How To Make Roasted Garlic.
- When the garlic is roasted, you're ready to make the hummus.
- Drain the chickpeas and add to the food processor along with the roasted garlic cloves, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil and oregano. Process. If needed, add in the water to thin it out a little and achieve the right consistency.
- Process until smooth. Taste test and add salt/pepper as needed.
- Serve with a sprinkle of paprika and some sliced veggies or flat breads for dipping.
