I like to make a batch of this Roasted Garlic Hummus on the weekend and store it in the fridge for an easy weekday snack with raw veggies. Roasting the garlic before hand makes for a beautiful nutty and sweet flavour that compliments the lemon and tahini perfectly. Chop up a big plate of raw mushrooms, carrots, broccoli and peppers for a healthy, protein-packed snack anytime of day.

This easy hummus recipe packs an extra flavour punch from the roasted garlic. Once the garlic is roasted, it comes together in just a few minutes and makes a great dip for raw veggies or healthy crackers.
