First you start using the best way to peel garlic before for roasting. Roasting garlic [insert link to roasted garlic article] is a very simple process. First get your garlic cloves and cut the end tips off. Then lather them up with your favorite olive oil (lemon or balsamic flavored might be tasty). Season with some salt and pepper, and Italian spices. Once that is done, pop them in the oven for about 40 minutes or until they look a little browned and cooked. Take out the garlic cloves, and squeeze them into a food processing dish. The insides should come out easily, and be soft and juicy. Add some chickpeas to the dish, then blend. If you want something more creative and tasty, then its time to spice things up.

Hummus is a dip that we really can't get enough of. It's like french oinion dip used to be until garlic hummus took its place in the history of dipping pleasures. Roasted garlic hummus is one of our favorites! It's creamy, nutty and garlicky, just the way we like it. Here's what to do!

First roast a whole head of garlic.and then puree it until silky smooth. Mince up a couple of raw cloves, and then saute them in olive oil. At the end you will stir this extra garlic kicker into the hummus for some extra punch when you munch. Cut 1/4 inch off the top of the bulb of garlic to expose the cloves beneath, but do not peel the garlic, you want to roast it in the skin. Place clove on a piece of aluminum foil, place butter on top, pour lemon juice over the garlic and sprinkle with kosher salt. Bring up all sides of aluminum foil and twist together to close. Cook for 60 minutes or until garlic cloves are soft and golden in color. Allow to cool.

When the garlic is cool enough to touch, use a fork to remove the cloves and add them to the food processor. Next add garbanzo beans, tahini and lemon juice. Puree until smooth. Add 3 tablespoons of reserved garbanzo bean juice. Puree. If you would like a thinner dip, add a little more of the reserved juice.Transfer hummus to a bowl, stir in kosher salt.In a small saucepan heat olive oil over medium heat. When hot, add minced garlic and cook for 30-60 seconds or until fragrant but not browned. Pour garlic oil into hummus. Stir. Sprinkle with paprika. Serve.Scoop up with veggies, pita chips or a spoon and enjoy!
