Confession time, I have a hummus addiction. I love the stuff! Lately, I have recently been hooked on making my own hummus, which has kicked this obsession into high gear. Roasting a whole head of garlic to add to this dip takes it to a whole other level. The rich garlic flavor paired with grilled veggies or pita chips is pure bliss. During the warmer months, I tend to make my homemade hummus recipe very regularly - I subject my friends and family to eating an obscene amount of this stuff!
While the full list of ingredients are available in the recipe card below, here is a breakdown of what you will need to make this creamy hummus.
I usually roast my garlic in advance of preparing this recipe, using my Easy Oven Roasted Garlic recipe!
While the full recipe instructions are available below, here are some tips to make the perfect dip.
I love to serve this classic recipe as an easy appetizer along with homemade tzatziki and warm pita bread that has been toasted to golden brown in the oven. However, there are many other ways you could use this classic hummus recipe in your cooking!
You could add your hummus to salad dressings to substitute high fat components of a recipe for healthy ingredients. The hummus will also add a great fresh flavor and creamy texture to the dressing.
I love to add hummus to sandwiches in place of mayonnaise or peanut butter! I have even seen some people add hummus to their pasta sauce or mashed potatoes - not sure about those two uses!
If you want an extra creamy roasted garlic hummus, you could remove the chickpea skins before adding them to the food processor. I tend to be too lazy and skip this step. I generally find this isn't really worth the extra time, and my hummus is delicious with their shells intact. However, if you want to take the extra effort, you will end up with an even creamier hummus!
