How To Make roasted garlic cilantro jalapeno hummus

  • 1
    Get 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.

    When 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.
