ROASTED GARLIC HUMMUS
what you will need
1 can chick peas, drained & liquid reserved
or about 2 cups cooked in pressure cooker, some of the liquid reserved
2 small heads of roasted garlic, skins removed
(my stove top method of roasted garlic here)
1/4 cup tahini (in a pinch peanut or almond butter will work)
juice of 1 large lemon (about 1/4 cup)
2-3 tbsp olive oil (plus more for serving)
sea salt and pepper to taste
paprika to garnish
time to prepare
Place chick peas, garlic,lemon juice and tahini in a blender
and process until smooth.
With blender running gradually drizzle in olive oil.
If the mixture is too thick add a little of the reserved chick peas liquid.
Adjust seasonings to taste.
When ready to serve, drizzle with extra olive oil
and sprinkle with your favourite paprika (mine is smokey and spicy)
This will keep for several days so prepare it in advance
because when Friday rolls around you can say
“Yay! it’s Happy Hour!”
