Holy Hot Hummus

I always enjoy fresh hummus.  However, I underestimated how much I would enjoy hot hummus with a few twists.

TWIST 1:  Roasted Garlic

Separate garlic to decrease cooking time.  Smother with olive oil and salt.  Bake covered at 375 degrees for ~25 minutes or until soft.  The result is a sweet clove without so much bite.

TWIST 2:  Walnuts

(Do I really need to photograph my bag of walnuts?)

These gave the hummus a creamier nutty taste.  And they add a punch of Vitamin E, B Vitamins, and Fiber!

TWIST 3:  Curry Powder

Just a pinch gives the hummus a kick without being overpowered.

Of course the hummus had the usual ingredients:  chickpeas, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, salt, and pepper.  When everything was combined I heated it on low until it was smooth, creamy and warm.   Best I’ve ever made!

Served with Wheat Thins and Sesame pita chips.
