Roasted Garlic Hummus Recipe

I love roasted garlic hummus. I serve it to guests who have never had traditional hummus or to those who don't care for tahini in hummus. It has a rich garlic flavor that is not overwhelming - it's just right.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans (15 oz.)
  • 2 tablespoons roasted garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano


In a food processor, process beans, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and oregano until desired consistency. If hummus is too thick, simply add olive oil in small increments (1/2 teaspoon) until desired consistency.

Serve roasted garlic hummus garnished with finely chopped parsley with hot pita bread, pita chips, or veggies. Roasted red pepper hummus goes very well with cubes of warm Italian bread.

Hummus can be prepared in advance up to two days if stored in airtight container in the refrigerator. To serve, heat in microwave or on stovetop.

I enjoy this recipe because being of Greek origin and putting oregano on almost everything, this hummus recipe has a Hellenic twist to if you use Greek oregano grown from your own garden. You could even add half a dozen chopped Kalamata olives and a bit more Peloponnese extra virgin olive oil.
