    Love roasted garlic hummus? Make your own! Simply roast 2 additional garlic bulbs as directed above and blend into hummus. For an extra garlicky flavor, drizzle hummus with olive oil and top with minced garlic just before serving.

  2. Drain beans, reserving 2 tablespoons liquid. Combine garlic pulp, beans and reserved liquid, lemon juice, tahini, and salt in a food processor or blender. Cover and process until smooth, scraping sides as needed. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. When ready to serve, spoon into a small serving dish and drizzle with additional olive oil, if desired.
