Roasted Garlic Hummus. A simple recipe that will adds a whole new depth of flavors to your hummus recipe.

I love hummus.  I love the flavor, the versatility and the simplicity of making it.  In just a few minutes you have something satisfying, healthy and well, just darned good.

Hummus can be used as a dip, a spread, a topping or an ingredient on its own.  It’s perfect with pita chips, flat breads or tortillas.  It can substitute for mayonnaise on a sandwich, makes a great base for a turkey or chicken wrap or used for a vegetable dip.

Hummus makes me happy.

I was walking through the local BigScaryMegaMart a few weeks ago and was offered a sample of a new product they were carrying.  It was a roasted garlic hummus and it was unfortunately, just good.  Not great.

By then it was a foregone conclusion that I would have to make a great roasted garlic hummus. So off I went to grab the rest of the ingredients I would need and home to get some garlic roasted.

I think I succeeded.  This hummus was a hit with my garlic loving middle son. (The oldest doesn’t touch hummus.)  We polished off the entire bowl shown in the photos in about 20 minutes.  I will be making this again without a doubt, but there are a few other variations I want to try first.

What’s your favorite hummus or bean dip recipe?  I’d love to hear about them.
