Roasted garlic. Browned butter. Sage. Hummus.
Four of the best things known to mankind combined in to one awesome appetizer.
This was literally gone in 5 minutes and I felt like a kitchen superstar. Seriously, the flavors and texture in this were perfect. I mixed it up in a food processor in no time and then served it at room temp.
By the way, if you love garlic, this hummus is for you. The roasted garlic makes your house smell amaaaaazzzinnnggggg and the hummus taste even better (to anyone who is within 5 feet of me at any given time in the next few days, sorry I’m not sorry- this was totally worth it.)
Not kidding, make this ASAP. For reals.
Prep time: 5 minutes |Cook time: 45 minutes | Total time: 50 minutes
- 15 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1 head of garlic, roasted (see below)
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Sea salt, pepper for sprinkling
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 5 fresh sage leaves
- 1/2 tsp ground sage
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 º F. Cut off the top of a whole head of garlic, drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper and wrap in tin foil leaving top exposed. Roast for 40 minutes or until garlic is soft. Remove from oven and let cool.
While garlic is cooling, brown butter. Melt butter in a sauce pan, then heat until it’s bubble and then begins to brown, stirring constantly. This will take approximately 5-7 minutes and you will know it’s done by the nutty smell the browned butter gives off. Remove from heat immediately.
Remove the skins from the garlic and place in a food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend together until smooth. Spoon in to serving dish and eat up!
