Roasted Garlic and Flax Seed Hummus

Submitted by: HBLOCKER

Introduction

Great dip for veggies Great dip for veggies
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    In a food processor, combine:
    1 rinsed/drained can of garbanzo beans
    5-6 cloves of roasted garlic
    1 tsp kosher salt
    2-3 T chicken stock
    4 T olive oil
    2 T flax seed
    2 T Red Curry Paste

    Blend and you're done! Adjust the roasted garlic and red curry paste to taste. I try to reduce the fat by replacing some of the olive oil with a little chicken stock. The flax seeds add good Omega 3's and add a nice texture contrast. I'm not exactly someone who uses recipes, so adjust all ingredients to get the taste and consistency you want.

    Another good addition: red chili flakes. Or some roasted red peppers.

Directions

No cooking needed!

Tip from my kitchen - I roast up multiple heads of garlic every now and then. Then lay on a sheet to freeze them individually. Once frozen, throw them in a container in the freezer to have quick roasted garlic for any soups, sauces or dips.

I'm low-carbin it, so I eat just a small amount of this (1-2 tbsp) as a nice dip for vegetables as a snack. Would be great on pita or some whole grain crackers, if your diet allows. For vegetarian version, just thin with vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.
