    Serves: 48 

    • 275g peeled garlic cloves
    • 1 cup (250ml) canola oil
    • 1 tablespoon cumin seeds
    • 950g chickpeas, undrained
    • 160g tahini
    • 120ml fresh lemon juice
    • 2 teaspoons coarse sea salt, or to taste

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:16min  ›  Ready in:36min 

    1. Place garlic cloves in a pan. Pour in oil to barely cover garlic. Heat over medium heat until oil bubbles. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring every 3 to 4 minutes, until garlic turns light brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and strain out garlic; let infused oil cool to room temperature.
    2. Place cumin seeds in a small fry pan over low heat. Toast until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a blender or spice grinder and process into a powder.
    3. Drain chickpeas into a bowl, reserving 2 to 3 tablespoons of the liquid.
    4. Combine 1/4 garlic cloves, cumin powder, chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and salt in a food processor; blend, thinning with reserved soaking liquid and 1 to 3 tablespoons garlic oil, until hummus is smooth.


    Use any leftover garlic-infused oil in pasta sauce or to make bruschetta, etc.

    I'm not a fan of garlic, and I really liked this. That roasted flavor simply changes everything, for the better. Thank you for the recipe.  -  08 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
