Roasted Garlic & Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted Garlic & Red Pepper Hummus

Courtesy Vincci Tsui, RD

Makes about 3 1/2 cups

 

Ingredients

1 head garlic

1 red pepper

1 can (540 mL/19 fl oz) chickpeas, or 2 cups cooked

2 Tbsp tahini

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

1 tsp cumin

¼ cup olive oil

Water (optional)

Salt and pepper, to taste

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 400˚F.

Cut the top off the garlic, exposing cloves. Drizzle with olive oil and wrap in aluminium foil. Roast in oven until garlic is golden and flesh is soft, about 30-40 minutes.

Meanwhile, roast the red pepper next to garlic or on a gas stove top, until skin is black. Place in a zipper-lock bag (or a bowl with saran wrap on top) – the steam will help make the skin easier to remove – until the red pepper is cool enough to handle. Discard skin and seeds.

Place flesh from roasted garlic, roasted red pepper, chickpeas, tahini and lemon zest and juice, and cumin into the bowl of a food processor or blender. Process ingredients until blended. While the food processor or blender is running, drizzle in olive oil and/or water until desired consistency is reached. Season to taste.

Keeps in refrigerator for 4-7 days or in freezer for 3-4 months.
