My contribution to #EatHealthy16 is a healthy snack – roasted garlic and mushroom hummus to be exact.  This dip is 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 don’t worry, the roasting makes the flavour much milder and it really isn’t too much.

I will be adding this hummus to my growing list of dip recipes that I make over and over again because they are so tasty.  That list already includes roasted red pepper hummus, this avocado hummus and this black bean hummus.  All healthy snack options, all fantastic.  Roasted garlic and mushroom hummus will be joining the rotation for sure.

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!

Roasted Garlic and Mushroom Hummus
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Yield: 2 cups
 
Ingredients
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2 cups button mushrooms, quartered
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 1 - 540ml (19.5 fl. oz.) can chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees 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 1½ teaspoons of olive oil. Toss the quartered mushrooms with another 1½ 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Hummus will keep well in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 5 days.

    So I’ve been know to eat hummus by the spoonful, it’s just SO good! But this version looks amazing, Stacey! Mushrooms and garlic are my absolute favorite, so I have no doubt that I would devour this entire batch in one sitting. Love this and can’t wait to try this!

      You can definitely taste the garlic more than the mushrooms, but I loved the combination – and yeah, a little different, but I like mushrooms! :)
