  • 1 large head garlic roasted {Click here for roasting instructions}
  • 2 cups canned chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup fresh parmesan grated
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ⁄4 cup warm water
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1 ⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • {Optional} Paprika for garnish


  1. Squeeze the garlic cloves out of its shell into a food processor.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and blend until completely smooth.
  3. Scrape down sides, as needed, and then continue blending to make sure all of the ingredients are blended evenly. If hummus is too thick, add extra olive oil, 1 tsp. at a time, and blend in between additions.
  4. Sprinkle paprika over hummus and serve with vegetables, crackers, or pretzels.
