Roasted Garlic Lemon Hummus

Have you seen those shirts that say “Hummus is a food group”? That’s totally me! I love love love hummus and eat a ton of it a week. You can buy a dozen different varieties at the store, but it is so easy (and quick) to make yourself. I like playing around with different flavors and add-ins to make my own unique blends (have you tried my Edamame Hummus), and today I am excited to share my latest creation – Roasted Garlic Lemon Hummus.

Roasted Garlic Lemon Hummus & Chips

It combines two of my favorite ingredients – garlic and lemon – for a killer combo in this light and zingy dip. I made it with vegetable broth instead of oil so it is also fat free! I love the caramelized flavor of garlic when it is roasted so I used that instead of raw garlic in this recipe. It complements the tangy taste of the lemon juice perfectly. Read on for the recipe!
