roasted garlic lemon hummus

„Mary Pickford used to eat roses, Thought that they’d make her beautiful and they did… “

Well I’m not that good in singing songs but who really cares if I cook in my little tiny kitchen. Maybe the all the patients of the otorhinolaryngologist team. But I guess that most patients don’t hear anything. That’s the reason why the stop at the doctor.

Anyway my friend S. came for dinner to my place on Friday. We had a lovely girls night so I thought about something simple and easy. I came up with hummus! I really really love hummus! It’s not very popular here at least you can’t buy it in a grocery. So I was not sure if she will like it. BUT!!! She got totally crazy of this stuff. We didn’t need the main course which was chicken in wine, rice and veggie. Oh and the dessert! It was delicious too. Dark chocolate cake on custard with caramelized apples. It was all about this hummus.

First of all I roasted a whole garlic. That’s pretty easy!

Just chop the head of and put some oil on it.

Add some salt and pepper!

If you a bit crazy like me put some chilli on top! Yeah, yeah! Spice up your life. Lalalalala!

Wrap it, place it on backing sheet and roast it for 30 minutes or until completely tender when poked with a knife.

Cool slightly.

Hummus is really one of the easiest appetizer. Take a can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed.

Some oil and garlic. You don’t have to roast the garlic but it’s so much sweeter. You should try it!

Put the chickpeas, some garlic cloves, the oil, tahini and juice of one lemon in the food processor. Add some salt and pepper to taste. And… here you go! Lovely creamy roasted garlic lemon hummus!

Serve with tortilla chips, veggies or whatever you like.
