This is a simple hummus that you can use on sandwiches or as a dip. We will be using a freshly roasted head of garlic to give it a rich delicious flavor.


  • 2 cups garbanzo beans (chick peas)
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed)
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 head garlic, roasted
  • 2 tablespoons water (optional)


  • Cut the top off the bulb of garlic about ½ down. This should cut through and expose the individual cloves.
  • Wrap the bulb in aluminum foil and roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 1 hour.
  • After allowing the bulb to cool, squeeze the roasted cloves out of the bulb and into the food processor.
  • Add the other ingredients (except the water) to the food processor and process to desired consistency.
  • For a smoother hummus, add water to the hummus and process for another 20-30 seconds.
