I haven’t always been a hummus fan.  In fact, I downright disliked it the first few times I had it.  I thought it was kind of bland and boring and not really worth eating.

I’ve changed my mind.

Only because I finally tried some better flavours.  I think the plain garlic hummus that I tried the first few times just wasn’t my thing.  But then I tried roasted red pepper hummus and after that I was hooked.  A healthy dip that has an unending number of flavour combinations?   Doesn’t really get much better than that – at least if you’re like me and get bored easily with your food and need to keep changing things!

So I’ve made a number of different kinds of hummus now – with a number of fails along the way.  But a few have been made over and over again because they are so tasty, including this avocado hummus and especially this black bean hummus.  Both fantastic!

This Mushroom and Roasted Garlic Hummus will need to join that list.  It’s amazing, and so full of flavour.  Especially a day or two after you make it.  It seems like a lot of garlic, with a full head of roasted garlic in the recipe, but the roasting makes the flavour much milder and it really isn’t too much.  The flavours do intensify as it refrigerates for a few days though.

This dip is a healthy snack that has been great to have in my fridge this month, as I try to get back into the normal, healthy eating habits that always seem to disappear in December!  Healthy, filling and full of flavour.  I may need to make some more soon!

Mushroom and Roasted Garlic Hummus

Everyone's favorite healthy dip recipe gets a flavor-packed makeover, adding fresh mushrooms and roasted garlic.
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Total: 40 mins
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2 cups button mushrooms quartered
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 19 ounces canned chickpeas rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Slice the top off the head of garlic to expose the cloves, but leave the peel intact. Place the garlic, cut side up on a foil lined baking sheet and drizzle the cloves with 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil. Toss the quartered mushrooms with another 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil and spread them on the baking sheet next to the garlic. Cover it all loosely with some foil and roast for 30-35 minutes or until the garlic is soft. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil and the tahini. Set aside. Press the roasted garlic out of the skins (it should come out easily) and place it and the roasted mushrooms in the bowl of a food processor along with the rinsed chickpeas and salt and process until combined. Add the lemon juice and process again. Then as the food processor is running, drizzle in the tahini mixture and process until smooth and creamy.
  • Hummus will keep well in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 5 days.
