How to Roast Garlic
The roasted garlic adds so much flavor and a hint of sweetness to the hummus. It really balances out the tanginess. Making it is super simple.
Just add peeled garlic cloves to a baking pan. Drizzle enough olive oil on top to create a thin layer on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the garlic with a little salt and roast at 350 °F until they’re soft and golden.
Allow them to cool and either puree them or place them with the oil in. freezer safe bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Add the garlic to dips, soup, and stews for a kick of flavor.
