Yield: 1½ cup
Category: Dip
Serves: 4
Diet: vegan, high protein, gluten-free
Preparation time: 55 minutes

Ingredients:
For the roasted garlic:
Bulb of garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil

For the hummus:
4 cloves roasted garlic
1 15.5- ounce can chickpeas drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon tahini paste
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon Fiji Joe Turmeric
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
¼ cup olive oil
Smoked paprika or chili powder to serve
A drizzle of olive oil to serve

Instructions:
🌡️ Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. 🧄 When your oven is ready, cut the bottom end off 1 bulb of garlic and drizzle olive oil on top and wrap in tin foil. If you’re preparing more than one bulb, I recommend you cut and wrap each garlic individually for a nice, even roast. Bake these in the oven for 40 minutes. Once the garlic is roasted, then cooled, open up one of the parcels and remove 4 cloves from the bulb.

Strain and pat dry the chickpeas. 🌱 In a blender, place the chickpeas, roasted garlic, tahini, lemon juice, salt and pepper, water, Fiji Joe Turmeric, and olive oil in the food processor. Blend until a smooth and creamy consistency is reached.

Scoop out the hummus into a serving bowl and drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika or chili powder if you like your spice! Enjoy.
