Roasted garlic and lemon gives this dish a fresh and nutty taste


  • 1 can, garbanzo beans – drained, water reserved
  • 1/4 cup, extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 cloves, garlic – peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon, kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon, red pepper flakes – crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon, cumin powder
  • 1 lemon – halved and pitted


Over medium heat in a frying pan combine olive oil and garlic cloves. Slowly cook garlic until it becomes golden brown. Tilt pan so garlic is completely covered in oil while cooking

Let oil cool. Remove garlic cloves and reserve

Place garbanzo beans, roasted garlic cloves, salt, crushed red pepper flakes, and cumin in a food processor

Pulse to break up

With processor running add oil slowly

Add reserved liquid from garbanzo beans until the mixture reaches a creamy consistency

Serve topped with a drizzle of olive oil (or better yet, truffle oil) and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
