  • Food processor 


Roast Garlic

  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil just a drizzle


  • 2 (15.5 oz) cans chickpeas
  • ⅓ -1/2 cup (75-112.5 ml) tahini sauce
  • cup (177 ml) olive oil
  • 1 piece lemon for lemon juice
  • 1/2 -1 teaspoon (1.01-2.03 g) cumin ground
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • pepper flakes garnish
  • paprika garnish
  • olive oil garnish


Roast Garlic

  • Cut the top ¼” to ½” off of a whole head of garlic, so that each individual clove should be visible. Make sure every garlic clove is exposed.
  • Place the head of garlic on foil paper together with the thyme. Drizzle the top of the garlic with a bit of oil, about 1 teaspoon. Wrap it up and place it in the oven to roast for about 30 minutes or more.
  • It should be soft, fragrant, and golden. Let the garlic cool, then squeeze individual cloves out of the skin.


  • In a food processor add in roasted garlic, chickpeas, tahini sauce, olive oil,lemon juice and cumin then blend until it's pureed.
  • You can add more of the tahini, olive oil, lemon and cumin. It really depends on which you prefer to add more and the taste you want to achieve.
  • Once it’s pureed transfer it in a bowl and top with pepper flakes, paprika and drizzle with olive oil.
