Roasted Garlic Hummus

Coming to my recipe , which is long due , it's Roasted Garlic Hummus. I made few weeks ago to have with Multi Flour Crackers. We are all addict to any flavoured Hummus, like Roasted pepper hummus, Jalapeno hummus and Caramelised Onion hummus, very versatile dip and spread which hails  Middle Eastern Cuisine. Roasted garlic hummus has rich garlic flavour but not overwhelming - it's just right for everyone !!

You will need:-
  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 4 tbsp olive oil + 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 450 g cooked chickpeas 
  • 3-4 cloves Garlic
  • salt per taste
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 3-4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper powder
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • Extra liquid for consistency

Pre heat oven to gas mark 4-5, 400 F or 200 C.
Cut garlic bulb in half horizontally, drizzle with olive oil and wrap loosely in foil .
Roast for 30-35 minutes or until soft.
Squeeze the garlic out of its skin to use it when slightly cooled.
In a blender or mixer add all the other ingredients with the roasted garlic .
Add little water or oil for a smooth hummus.
Blend till you achieve your desired consistency.
Serve with a thin layer of extra virgin olive oil on top, and garnish with pinch of paprika.
