 Is Roasted Garlic hummus healthy?

Hummus is low in saturated fat and high in fiber and protein. The high fiber content means that it will leave you full for longer, and adding garlic to hummus provides an additional nutritional value.

Garlic has been linked to many health benefits, such as boosting your immune system and decreasing the likelihood of developing common colds (1,2). Garlic regularly has also been linked to several Cardio Vascular Benefits such as reducing blood pressure and reducing LDL cholesterol (AKA Bad Cholesterol) (3,4,5)

Roasted Garlic Hummus Ingredients:

a bowl of chickpeas, half lemon, 1/4 cup tahini, salt, baking soda, a bowl of ice cubes, a head of garlic and olive oil
  • Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans): A can of good organic chickpeas.
  • Baking Soda: Helps soften the chickpeas for easier grinding and smoother hummus!
  • Roasted Garlic: Garlic loses its strong taste once it’s roasted, and after its roasted will end up with a rich, sweet, and smokey flavor.
  • Tahini: Tahini is the most prominent flavor in Hummus. High-quality tahini is a must for delicious Hummus. I found that Tahini made from Ethiopian sesame seeds gives the best results; check it out here. (Affiliate Link)
  • Lemon juice: Freshly squeezed, adds brightness!
  • Ice Cubes: Some people use cold water; I prefer ice cubes. They give lighter color and a creamier texture to my hummus.
  • Extra Virgin Olive oil: Drizzle extra on top for serving.
  • Sea Salt: to taste
  • Garnish: (Optional) I added ground cumin, sumac, chopped parsley, and toasted pine nuts.

How to make Roasted Garlic hummus?

A head of garlic, roasted garlic, chickpeas in a food processor, ice cubes and the final result of the hummus.
