  • 1 16 ounces canned chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans
  • 1/3 cup of chickpea liquid
  • 1 tablespoon of tahini
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil, plus additional to coat fresh garlic and adjust to taste
  • 4 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 4 cloves of fresh peeled garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon of table salt
  • Sweet paprika
  • Parsley

Cooking Instructions

  1. Open your Garlic Shaker®. Toss an entire head of garlic into it. Close the lids. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Open a lid. Pour out the peeled cloves.
  2. Preheat the oven to about 375 Degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Cut the top off the garlic cloves and coat with a little olive oil.
  4. Wrap the garlic cloves in tin foil and bake for about an hour. Remove from oven and let cool.
  5. Remove garlic pieces from the clove.
  6. Using a strainer, strain the chickpeas. Set aside about 1/3 cup of liquid aside.
  7. Using a hand blender or traditional blender, blend together the chickpeas, chickpea liquid, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, roasted garlic and salt. Add a little olive oil if hummus is too thick, blend until smooth.
  8. Pour hummus on a serving plate and garnish with paprika and parsley. Serve alongside pita, crackers or as sandwich spread.
