This roasted garlic hummus dip recipe is quick and easy to follow. It is also healthier and cheaper then the store bought stuff.  As an added bonus it is also naturally gluten free and dairy free. Roasted garlic hummus is my favorite flavor.

First I started with locally grown non-gmo garbanzo beans from Joseph’s Grainery. I used the quick soak method and had my beans ready in less than 3 hours with enough for this recipe and some to freeze for later. You may also used canned garbanzo beans or chickpeas for this recipe. Making the hummus only takes a few minutes with a food processor. I roasted my own head of garlic in about 20 minutes while the beans were soaking. Another nice thing about this recipe is that it is versatile, you can leave out the roasted garlic and add in roasted red peppers or what ever you prefer or just leave it plain. This roasted garlic hummus is perfect served with a variety of your favorite vegetables or chips. I served mine with rainbow carrots, English cucumber and black bean quinoa chips. It can also be used as a sandwich spread in place of mayonnaise. Hummus is perfect for meatless Monday’s or as a vegan lunch choice.

If you love hummus, please take the time to make your own. It cost pennies to make and I promise you won’t be disappointed. What is your favorite variety? I would love to read comments from you on how your hummus turns out and what variety you make. Happy Dipping!
