Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I especially loved the roasted garlic and cilantro in this hummus. It's definitely not your traditional hummus! The flavors pack a punch and make you want to go back for more (and more) ...
chickpeas/garbanzo beans (15 oz)
garlic bulb (about 8 to 10 cloves or more)
cilantro, fresh (washed and cut up)
jalapeno pepper cut up (fresh or from a jar)
lemon juice (1 teaspoon and a half)
How to Make Roasted Garlic Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus
1Get your garlic ready. Set oven to 375. Peel and separate the garlic cloves and make a bowl out of foil. Place the cloves in the foil bowl and cover with the olive oil. Close the bowl up around the garlic till just a pinch is open on top. Put on/in a oven safe pan and roast for 35 to 45 minutes.
2When garlic is done take it out to cool while you prepare the other ingredients. In a food processor or blender put your chickpeas (drained but leave a little water 1/8 cup), lemon, salt, and jalapeno. Blend until most is chopped. Add the garlic along with the oil in the foil and blend until smooth. Now add your cilantro and blend until it is a pretty green color. You can serve it warm or cold with veggies for dipping or on bread.
