Rebel Garlic Hummus

Our recipe this week was Rebel Garlic Roasted hummus. We used freshly picked heirloom garlic from our garden that is local to Philadelphia.
• 1 C dry chickpeas
• 1 head of roasted garlic
• 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• Salt and pepper
*No tahini is used in our recipe because you can’t find it around Southwest Philadelphia
Chickpea Preparation:
Soak 1 C dry chickpeas in purified water for a day. Simmer for an hour.
Hummus Preparation:
In a food processor, process beans, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper 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.

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.
