What goes into the Roasted Garlic Hummus?

To make this deliciously simple vegan hummus, you will need:

  • A couple bulbs of roasted garlic
  • A can of chickpeas. Make sure to drain and rinse them very well to get all the canning liquid off.
  • Some good quality tahini. It’s super important to stir this well before you add it to the hummus. Tahini has a tendency to settle and separate.
  • Miso paste. I’m a fan of organic!
  • Fresh squeezed lemon juice. NO bottled stuff!
  • Sea Salt.
  • Extra virgin olive oil. Use a good quality oil for this, as it not only flavors the hummus, but will be drizzled on top for serving (and more deliciousness!).
  • Good old water.

What kind of miso paste should I use?

Any good quality miso paste you like should do the trick here. I am partial to Marukome Organic Miso Paste. It has great flavor, and it keeps for a long time in the fridge. It’s a great addition to sauces, ramen and more- so I always have some on hand.

More than hummus and pita- serving suggestions!

It’s no secret that hummus and pita go together like PB&J, but there’s a lot of things out there that are super tasty when dipped into some creamy homemade hummus. Here are some great ideas for things to serve alongside your creamy dip:

  • Sesame crackers
  • Sliced bell peppers, carrots, celery and radishes
  • Cucumber slices 
  • Any type of cracker, even nut crackers!
  • Tortilla chips
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Crisped naan bread
  • Baguette toasts

Storing the Roasted Garlic Miso Hummus

Once this hummus is blended and ready to go, it can be packed away in an airtight container for up to a week in the refrigerator. If you’re saving leftovers from a party, I would recommend removing the parsley before you pack it away in the fridge.
