Roasted Garlic Pesto Hummus
stacy's garlic parmesan pita chips. it was obvious from cleaning up that the pita chips were the crowd favorite. i used the whole bag and not a crumb was left on the plate. there was a carrot or two and a stray green pepper but the pita chips were the hit.
1 large head garlic
1 tsp olive oil
1 - 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs pesto (see my pesto recipe here)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbs olive oil, if needed
preheat oven to 300 degrees F. chop off the top of a head of garlic and drizzle with a teaspoon of olive oil and wrap tightly in aluminum foil. roast for 1 hour. remove and let cool completely.
combine cooled roasted garlic and remaining ingredients in the food processor and puree until smooth. if it needs a little thinning, add some olive oil until desired consistency.
