Once you try homemade hummus, you will never go back. Make this easy dish with canned chickpeas from Wild Oats.
Ingredients
  • 1 large head garlic
  • 2½ Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 (15 oz) can Wild Oats chickpeas, drained
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp tahini
  • ½ tsp salt, or to taste
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp water
  • Chopped fresh parsley and red pepper flakes, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut about ¼-inch from top of garlic to expose tops of cloves for roasting.
  2. Place garlic head on a sheet of foil and drizzle 1½ tsp olive oil evenly over top of garlic. Wrap foil up around garlic and roast 35 - 45 minutes until golden brown on a cookie sheet. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  3. To your food processor add chick peas, lemon juice, tahini, salt and cumin then pulse mixture 2 minutes. Scrape down sides and bottom of food processor, add remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil, set aside 3 - 4 cloves of the garlic and add remaining (about 10 - 11) to food processor. Pulse 1 minute, then add water and pulse 1-2 minutes longer.
  4. Plate hummus, make indentation in center and add 1 - 2 Tbsp more olive oil to taste (optional), then chop remaining roasted garlic cloves and sprinkle over top, sprinkle with parsley and red pepper flakes.
  5. Serve with fresh veggies or gluten-free crackers. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.
