Default Roasted Garlic Hummus

Makes 8 servings


1 head garlic
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 19 oz. can garbanzo beans (or chick peas)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon tahini (sesame paste available at Middle Eastern food shops)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Cut 1/3 of the top off the garlic and place in a small oven proof dish. Pour the chicken broth over the garlic Cover with a lid or tinfoil and bake 40 minutes, basting with broth until the garlic becomes soft.

Remove the dish from the oven and squeeze cloves out of skins into a food processor (be careful as the garlic will be hot). Add garbanzo beans, lemon juice, soy, tahini and 2 tbs. chicken broth to the food processor and process until smooth, adding more of the chicken broth if necessary to create a smooth dip. Stir in parsley.

Sprinkle with paprika and serve with pita bread or cut up veggies.
