Healthy Roasted Garlic Hummus

Submitted by: DEBBIEG8S

Introduction

oasting your garlic just adds another demension to this healthy and tasty hummus. By reducing the amount of tahini and using olive oil and sesame oil you reduce the calories and fat content. It's a great alternative to fat laden dips and spreads and only takes minutes to prepare, if you plan ahead just a little bit. oasting your garlic just adds another demension to this healthy and tasty hummus.

Ingredients

    1 Head Roasted Garlic
    1/4 Cup Plain Low Fat Yogurt
    1 Tbls. Fresh Lemon Juice
    1 tsp. Olive Oil
    1 tsp. Sesame Oil
    2 Tbls. Tahini
    14 tsp. Salt
    1/4 tsp. Paprika
    1 19 oz. Can Chick Peas (Garbonzo Beans)

Directions

To roast 1 head of garlic, cut the pointed end off just enough to expose the garlic from the skins, spray exposed garlic with cooking spray and wrap in aluminum foil.( If you do this when you are planning to use your oven to bake something you can avoid using the oven JUST to roast 1 head of garlic). Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour. Remove from oven, allow to cool then squeez out all the garlic pulp into a small bowl until ready to use. If you store the garlic in the refridgerator until th next day cover the bowl tightly.

Drain and rinse chick peas.

Combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix until desired consistancy, 3 to 5 minutes. Scoop into a bowl, cover and refridgerate. Refridgerate at least 3 hours to allow the flavors to blend.

Use as a dip for fresh veggies or crackers, or use it on toasted bread instead of mayo for a healthy alternative to sandwiches.
