How To Make Roasted Garlic Hummus From Scratch
Making your own hummus from scratch is so easy. It’s almost a joke how easy it is. Basically, you roast the garlic, then add all the ingredients into a food processor, blend until smooth, and watch it form. Maybe add a splash of water to thin the hummus. But otherwise, that is it.
In this recipe, roasted garlic is key. Although the garlic needs to roast for 30 minutes, it’s totally worth the wait. Once the garlic is done, the chickpeas, miso paste, tahini, lemon juice, sea salt and oil are all added into the food processor to blend until smooth and creamy. The miso paste addition in the ingredients list might catch you off guard but I promise it is an important ingredient. Miso paste adds amazing flavour to this vegan dip. So don’t leave it out of this recipe!
I do give the option in the recipe to add a few tablespoons of water if you like your hummus to be on the thinner side. It’s completely a personal preference. I suggest following the recipe and then once it’s blending for a few minutes make the call to add a little bit of water (2-3tbsp) to thin it out. Or if your food processor is having trouble blending it smooth, add a few tablespoons.Thick or thin, this garlic roasted hummus is absolutely mouthwatering. All the flavours in this recipe meld together beautifully and keep you coming back from more.

hummus with roasted garlic
- 2 heads garlic (to be roasted)
- 1-2 tsp avocado oil (to be drizzled on top)
- 1 1/2 cups chickpeas
- 1 tbsp brown rice miso paste
- 1/2 cup tahini
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- pinch sea salt
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2-3 tbsp filtered water (to thin)
- Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Begin by cutting off the tops of your garlic heads so that the top of the cloves are exposed. Leave on the paper that surrounds the garlic. Drizzle 1-2 tsp of oil on top of the exposed garlic and then wrap the garlic in aluminum foil. Place on a baking sheet (exposed tops facing up) and bake for 30-40 minutes, until garlic is soft.
- Once the roasted garlic is done, set it aside to cool while you assemble the rest of the hummus ingredients.
- Drain and rinse the chickpeas (if using from a can). Add the chickpeas, tahini, miso paste, lemon juice, salt and oil to a food processor. Blend until smooth. This may take a few minutes. Add 1-3 Tbsp of water at a time until your desired thickness forms. Add the roasted garlic to the hummus, by moving your fingers from the base of the garlic clove up to the top. The clove should just pop out. Add each clove to the hummus (skins of the garlic removed).
- Blend the hummus until smooth. Top with a dash of oil and pepper. Enjoy right away or store in a sealed container for a week.
