Well, Christmas is over and New Year’s is looming. The time when we all wonder why, exactly, did we eat ALL those cookies?! Here’s a healthy delicious treat to get your New Year’s off to a good start -and we haven’t given up any taste! Roasted Garlic Hummus.
The first step is roasting the garlic – be prepared for your home to smell fabulous! Just place a head of garlic on a piece of foil, cut off the top 1/4 of the head and slowly drizzle olive oil over the head of garlic. Wrap the head of garlic in the foil and roast in the oven for an hour. While the garlic is roasting drain and skin the chickpeas. There are two camps, those who prefer to skin the chickpeas, and those who don’t. It can be a pain, but I think the end result is a creamier hummus. I’d at least run them through your fingers and discard any loose skins. Then just combine all the ingredients in a processor and Voila!! Serve with veggies or gluten free crackers, to keep that resolution intact.
