Smooth and creamy Garlicky Chive Hummus is such a crowd pleaser! Homemade hummus is extra silky smooth, fresh & delicious, plus you can create your own twist on it, such as adding roasted garlic & garlic chives. Serve it as a healthy snack or a spread for sandwiches and wraps. Taste the difference between homemade & store bought for yourself! 



Roasted Garlic:
  • 1 head of garlic (entire bulb)
  • ½ tsp olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste 


  • 1 cup dried chickpeas soaked for 6-8 hours, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ⅓ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp Garlicky Chives microgreens, plus more for garnish
  • Drizzle of good olive oil for serving, optional
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds to garnish



Roast the Garlic: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Peel most of the skin off of the garlic, making sure to keep the bulb intact. 
  2. Use a sharp knife to cut ¼” off the top part of the garlic bulb off.  Drizzle the tops of exposed cloves with olive oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper. 
  3. Cover the bulb with foil and bake for about 40 minutes, until the cloves are soft and deeply golden brown in color. Cool for about 10-15 minutes.

Prepare the Hummus:

  1. Place the soaked & drained chickpeas and the baking soda in a large pot and add enough water to cover the chickpeas by 2 inches. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then partially cover the pot and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for about 60 minutes or until the chickpeas have begun to fall apart. Remove the skins from the top of the water then drain the chickpeas. 
  2. Place the chickpeas in a food processor and process until it becomes a paste. Squeeze the roasted garlic out of the skin directly into the food processor then add the tahini, lemon juice, water, and salt. Process until smooth and creamy. Stir in the chopped garlicky chive microgreens.
  3. Transfer the hummus to a bowl and top with a drizzle of olive oil (or chili oil), sesame seeds and additional garlicky chive microgreens. 
  4. Refrigerate until ready to eat. Serve with veggies, pita or your favorite crackers. Enjoy!
