Roasted garlic adds a sweet mild flavor to this creamy Roasted Garlic Hummus. It is easy to make and cheaper than store-bought!
Ahh, roasted garlic, how I love thee. If you have never had roasted garlic before, you are in for a treat. When you roast garlic it becomes sweet and mild.
The strong garlic bite disappears, making it the perfect addition to a creamy hummus recipe. It also tastes good mixed with vegan mayo to use as a spread on a sandwich.
I made this Roasted Garlic Hummus recipe for a New Year's get together, which went over well with my guests. I didn't want the usual hummus with raw garlic, and wasn't sure if they would like a spicy hummus, so I decided on this to play it safe.
Many people I know don't like spicy foods, which I gravitate towards. If you are like me, I have several spicy hummus recipes, including Chipotle Hummus, Jalapeño Cilantro Hummus, and Spicy Black Bean Hummus that all provide a kick.
Hummus is about one of the easiest appetizers that you can make. I found that once I had the basic recipe down, I could add whatever flavors I wanted. It's important to have the base down with how you like it, because after that, you can make whatever flavor you want. The sky's the limit.
I currently have about thirteen hummus recipes, with a couple more waiting to be published. I even have a Dark Chocolate Hummus that makes for a great dessert dip. You can also use it as a spread on a Berry and Chocolate Hummus Dessert Pizza.
It is one of those dips that I will continue to come up with more recipes for, because I can't get enough of it. I actually have three different kinds in my fridge right now!
Cheaper Than Store Bought
Even though I love hummus so much, I don't love the price of store-bought. Not to mention the little eight ounce tubs don't last long in my house. I would rather make my own, thank you very much.
It save me money, and it lasts a lot longer. Also, I can customize the ingredients. There's one brand that I used to buy that puts some preservatives in it that I don't recognize. The consistency is also a little too thin for my tastes.
Considering how easy it is to make your own, why not! It literally only takes about five minutes to whip up after the garlic is roasted.Roasted garlic adds a sweet mild flavor to this creamy Roasted Garlic Hummus. It is easy to make and cheaper than store bought! Click To Tweet
