Here I’m showing you a classic and simple homemade Roasted Garlic Hummus recipe made without tahini. Tahini is a sesame paste that is most commonly used in store bought hummus. For those who prefer hummus without tahini or are allergic, this roasted garlic hummus has the perfect garlic taste and smoothness to the hummus. Although it may be easier buying store bought, making homemade hummus is a lot healthier especially when you know the exact ingredients you are using! Hummus is cost saving, healthy, delicious and great for veggies, crackers, wraps, sandwiches, and dipping. You definitely have to try it!
