This garlic lover's dream tastes better than anything you can buy at the store. To save time, roast the garlic in advance while preparing other roasted vegetables, or dishes in the oven. Roasted garlic can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container covered in olive oil for up to one week.


  • 1 large head garlic
  • 3 T. extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 115-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 c. tahini
  • 3 T. water
  • 1 t. ground cumin
  • ½ t. cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • To serve:
  • Fresh vegetables: Tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and/or celery
  • Kalamata olives
  • High-quality extra virgin olive oil
  • Smoked paprika, for garnish



Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut the top off garlic head and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Wrap in aluminum foil and place in pre-heated oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool for a few minutes.


Add remaining olive oil, chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, water, ground cumin and cayenne pepper to a blender or food processor. Once cool, remove roasted garlic cloves from outer skin and add to the container.


Season with sea salt, to taste, and blend until smooth. Add more water, if necessary, to achieve desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired.
