Roasted Garlic Hummus

Published June 4, 2012 by jenmatteson

I usually make a roasted red pepper hummus, but I thought I’d change it up a little this time and use roasted garlic.  Roasting garlic is so super easy, and even if you think you don’t like garlic, try it.  It completely changes the flavor profile, almost sweet.  It gave the hummus just a hint of flavor, but much better than just plain.  This is great for crackers, bread, pita, veggies, and even spreading on sandwiches and burgers.
