Recipe for Hummus- just a little bit nutty

Its Saturday and pouring with rain: a perfect day for creations in the kitchen.
This made this recipe a lot while going to university in Victoria, BC.  Today I stumbled upon a handwritten copy of the recipe in my mom’s recipe collection, and was inspired to make it again.
I got the thumbs up from my family, I hope you and your family enjoy it too!

  • 1 head roasted garlic, peeled (see notes below on how to roast garlic)
  • 1 large can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 generous tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (more if desired)
  • Water as needed for consistency


  • Place all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until smooth. If the hummus is too dry, and it probably will be, add water until hummus is thick, but smooth and spreadable.
  • That’s it, that’s all. So easy and delicious!

How to roast garlic

  • Heat oven to 350F.
  • Peel the outer layers of the garlic (but leave it as a whole head)
  • Place garlic on a baking sheet or piece or tinfoil. Drizzle olive oil over the garlic. Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes.
