Homemade Roasted Garlic Hummus

by GettingFreedom on February 6, 2012

Hummus has quickly become a favorite snack around here.  At first I was hesitant to even try it.  I mean really, with a name like Hummus?  But I’m glad I did!

However, hummus can get expensive, especially for this family of 6.  Thankfully hummus is easy as ever to make–and it whips up in a snap.  For a fraction of the cost of store bought!  The other benefit to homemade hummus?  You can customize the flavors to your family’s liking!

Homemade Roasted Garlic Hummus

You can use this basic Roasted Garlic Hummus as a basis for many other flavors of hummus, such as roasted red pepper and jalapeno.


  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas {with liquid}
  • 4 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Tahini
  • 2 Roasted Garlic Cloves; crushed {we like LOTS of garlic, so we tend to add even more}
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor, and blend until smooth.
  2. Do a taste test, and adjust salt and garlic as desired.
  3. Serve with fresh vegetables and/or pita bread.

Homemade Hummus makes a great after school snack, appetizer, or as a side with lunch.  Who am I kidding?  It makes a great lunch! ;)

What’s your favorite hummus flavor?
