I LOVE HUMMUS. However, I didn’t realize how much I really liked hummus until I had some of the dreamiest creamiest hummus at top notch restaurants like Zahav in Philadelphia! Once you’ve had a spoonful of the most luscious authentic hummus, you can never really go back to the store bough stuff. I have, over the span of many years, tried different brands of store bought hummus but they have just way too much tang for me. When I get hungry or need a quick snack, I love reaching in the fridge and just indulging in a spoonful of hummus.
Another great way to enjoy it is to try it with different toppings. You could top it with grilled chicken, roasted veggies, toasted nuts, yogurt…the possibilities are endless!
Today I am sharing with you just one of the variations on hummus I make. Roasting the garlic brings out a delicious sweetness and adds a real smooth and creamy texture to the hummus. Using raw garlic is not the same, so please take the time to roast it! You can roast a few heads of garlic at a time and keep it refrigerated. It is great added to pasta sauces!
I also add green chilis to mine and you can omit this step or add some roasted red peppers, fresh herbs, etc. Have FUN with this recipe!
