Roasted Garlic Hummus Mezze Platter.
  • 29 oz. Can of Chickpeas
  • 1 Tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 Tsp. Salt
  • ¼ Cup of Tahini
  • ½ Cup of Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon, juiced
  • ½ Tsp of Cumin
  • ½ Tsp of Paprika
  • 6-8 Roasted Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Raw garlic clove, optional
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Veggies, crackers, olives and feta for dipping and topping
  1. Combine chickpeas with baking soda and salt in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring the water to a boil and cook for 2-3 minutes, then drain and rinse the chickpeas in cold water. Continue to shake them in the colander while rinsing under cold water to help separate the skin from the bean.
  2. Remove and discard the chickpea skin and transfer the chickpeas to a blender or food processor.
  3. Add tahini, olive oil, juice of one lemon, cumin, paprika, and roasted garlic cloves to the blender or food processor. If desired, add an additional raw garlic clove if you like a stronger garlic flavor.
  4. Blend to combine until very smooth, and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve with an extra drizzle of olive oil and veggies, crackers, olives and feta.
