Caremelised Garlic Hummus
Serves: 5
Preparation Time: 15 Mins
Cooking Time: 45 Mins
    • 1 Large garlic head, whole & unpeeled
    • 3 Cups chickpeas, preferably home-cooked
    • Zest and juice of 1 unwaxed lemon
    • 1/4 cup tahini
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more dor drizzling
    • Sea Salt flakes
    • Generous grind of white pepper

Preheat oven to 250 Degrees. Cut off top of garlic head so you can just see tops of cloves peeking through. Discard top, then sit garlic on a piece of aluminium foil and seal ends tightly, while leaving parcel slightly baggy. Place on a small foil pan (or similar) and bake for 45 minutes. Let cool in foil wrapping.

Drain and rinse chickpeas (if using canned or jarred), then tip into a food processor. Add lemon zest and juice; squeeze in soft flesh from caramelized garlic. Spoon in tahini and 1/4 cup oil, then blitz to a smooth puree. Tip in up to 1/4 cup cold water to get the right consistency, blitzing as you go, then add 1 tsp. salt and pepper. Taste and season lightly with more salt if needed. Decant into a bowl. Drizzle with more oil, if desired, and serve.
