Creamy, garlicky and nutty hummus is perfect for dipping vegetables and chips. Roasted Garlic and White Bean Hummus is the ultimate gameday appetizer!

Ever since I lived in South Louisiana, I like my hummus garlicky.

Like, out of control garlicky.

So much so that I get disappointed when I try hummus at a restaurant, and I don’t leave the place reeking of garlic.

… Yes, I know. It’s a little absurd, but it’s the truth.

When I was brainstorming recipes to cook up for this coming weekend’s Super Bowl festivities, I knew I wanted to make a delightfully garlicky hummus… and as I continued with that thought, I realized a Roasted Garlic and White Bean Hummus would be perfect for a crowd — assuming your crowd is like me and enjoys all the garlic.

This Roasted Garlic and White Bean Hummus is pretty simple to make, and once the garlic cloves have roasted, all you do is combine the ingredients in a food processor, and let them go. Bonus points go to the roasted garlic cloves because they add such divine flavor to this dip without being overpoweringly potent, which I know can cause problems for some folks.

Either way, I think this recipe is a winner, and my taste-testers concur. Here’s how you can make your own for the big game:

    Hooray for garlic! I can’t say my brain even registers that sports exist most of the time but it definitely registers a big batch of garlicky hummus. Sounds amazing!

    • Erin

      Yes! Hooray for garlic! And I’m glad your brain registers a big batch of garlicky hummus instead of a big game. That’s the important thing, really, and I live for the SuperBowl for the food and the ads… not the football, though I love me some college football.

    Garlic and I are BFFs. There’s a middle eastern restaurant nearby that gives you a bowl of pretty much just pureed garlic for your bread, and I have definitely tried it with a spoon. This bean hummus sounds fantastic!

    • Erin

      Garlic and I get along great, too, and I totally want to try out that Middle Eastern restaurant by your home so I can eat all the pureed garlic on bread. Oh man… That sounds divine.

    Looks delicious!!

    • Erin

      Thanks, Madison!

    You are speakin’ my language. I haven’t found a hummus recipe that I’m happy with yet so I can’t wait to try this one. Maybe I have been adding to many extra spices?

    • Erin

      Glad that I’m speaking your language with this recipe, Kathy! I’m sorry you haven’t found a keeper hummus recipe yet, but I hope this one is that for you. Simplicity is sometimes the best, though I’ve never put many spices in my hummus… and I kind of want to try that now. Haha.

    This sounds delicious. I used to try to to make hummus but never found a recipe I really liked. Will definitely have to give this one a shot! I’m not particularly excited about the super bowl (unless watching the halftime show counts) but may try a batch of this just because.

    • Erin

      Thanks, Mandy! We make hummus A LOT, and I hope that you enjoy this recipe! I feel you about not being particularly excited about the Super Bowl, and I think making a batch of this sounds perfect for your halftime viewing. 🙂
