Roasted Garlic Hummus
Hummus, a thick paste made from chickpeas and sesame seeds, is the perfect pairing for veggies, pita chips, deviled eggs, and more! Why go with store-bought when you can make your own homemade hummus? If you’re a garlic lover, this one’s for you!

Ingredients
2 tablespoons Roasted Garlic (recipe follows)
1 can (about 15 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup fresh parsley sprigs
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/8 teaspoon dark sesame oil
Dash hot pepper sauce (optional)
Pita bread wedges and fresh vegetables (optional)

Directions
Yield: 6 servings
Serving size: 1/4 cup hummus

1. Prepare Roasted Garlic: Cut off top third of 1 large garlic head (not the root end) to expose cloves; discard top. Place head of garlic, trimmed end up, on 10-inch square of foil. Rub garlic generously with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Gather foil ends together and close tightly. Roast in preheated 350°F oven 45 minutes, or until cloves are golden and soft. When cool enough to handle, squeeze roasted garlic cloves from skins; discard skins.

2. Place chickpeas, parsley, 2 tablespoons Roasted Garlic, water, lemon juice, curry powder, sesame oil, and hot pepper sauce, if desired, in food processor or blender. Cover; process until smooth.

3. Serve with pita wedges and vegetables, if desired.
