Now that I have lost a little over 30 pounds, I have been snacking smarter and making better eating choices.
But, sometimes that can be a little hard because I am a salty and savory snacker. I would choose chips and dip any day over chocolate cake or a sugary cookie.
Sadly chips and cream-based dips can really pack on the calories and weight! So, I have been snacking smarter with salsas and hummus while nixing the calorie-laden dips.
This Roasted Garlic Hummus (without Tahini) recipe pairs so well with a healthier snack like Harvest Snaps.
Have you ever tried Harvest Snaps? I found them in the produce aisle at my local Stop & Shop retailer.
Harvest Snaps are baked, crunchy veggie crisps made from high quality ingredients. Veggies are the first ingredient (green peas, black beans, or red lentil), and there is 4-5 grams of plant-based protein and 4-5 grams of fiber in each serving!
I love the crunch Harvest Snaps have! The Lightly Salted goes so well with this Roasted Garlic Hummus– but actually–any flavor does since this hummus is mild.
Roasted Garlic Hummus without Tahini Recipe
Since this hummus does not use tahini, chances are you might have all the ingredients needed right at home!
The first step to making this recipe is to roast the garlic. I don’t know about you, but I love the taste and aroma of fresh roasted garlic!
How to Roast the Garlic:
- Heat oven to 350 F.
- Remove the extra papery skin from your entire garlic bulb and discard.
- Cut a little over 1/4″ carefully off the full top surface of the bulb to reveal the cloves.
- Place bulb(s) in muffin tin to allow them to bake nicely without falling over.
- Bake for 30-45 minutes or until tops are deep golden brown and jelly-like.
- With a small fork, remove the caramelized, jellied bulbs.
These are delicious not only in this roasted garlic hummus, but also on fresh crusty bread & more!
I love how the roasted garlic gave this hummus a delicious flavor without being too bold.
I didn’t want it to be too strong and think the acid from the lemon juice, salt, and pepper helped to balance it out!

This recipe was absolutely delicious. I was aiming more for a hint of garlic so I doubled the recipe but stuck with one bulb of garlic overall. I roasted it in my air fryer. Came out so delicious and I get to enjoy hummus without buying tahini which is expensive!
Hi, it is a quality extra virgin olive oil at 1/4 cup! Sorry about that!
How much oil the steps include oil but does not say anywhere the amount or what kind.
Hi, I do drain, but I do not remove the shells. I do not not mind them and they blend easily.
Do you drain and remove the soft shells from the chickpeas?
