Recipe for Hummus- just a little bit nutty

Its Saturday and pouring with rain: a perfect day for creations in the kitchen.  

This made this recipe a lot while going to university in Victoria, BC.  Today I stumbled upon a handwritten copy of the recipe in my mom’s recipe collection, and was inspired to make it again.  

I got the thumbs up from my family, I hope you and your family enjoy it too!

  1. 1 head roasted garlic, peeled (see notes below on how to roast garlic)
  2. 1 large can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  3. 2 generous tablespoons natural peanut butter
  4. 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  5. 1/2 tsp. salt (more if desired)
  6. Water as needed for consistency
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until smooth. If the hummus is too dry, and it probably will be, add water until hummus is thick, but smooth and spreadable.
  2. That's it, that's all. So easy and delicious!
How to roast garlic
  1. Heat oven to 350F.
  2. Peel the outer layers of the garlic (but leave it as a whole head)
  3. Place garlic on a baking sheet or piece or tinfoil. Drizzle olive oil over the garlic. Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes.
