Anyone out there that loves hummus as much as I do? I sure hope so because I have a new flavor to share with you today. I just made some easy Roasted Garlic & Dill Hummus and couldn’t wait to share it with you!

 I love hummus! It’s my favorite snack and guess what? It’s a healthy snack! I always get some cucumbers when I know that I’ll be making it because hummus rocks with cucumbers. Wheat pita chips are a close second to dip in hummus.

I often play around with flavors, there are just so many possibilities. Recently, I got my hands on some fresh dill weed (since mine hasn’t started growing yet) at a farmer’s marker and I thought it would be perfect in hummus. I just love the taste of fresh herbs, makes all the difference in the world!

Garlic also taste completely different fresh vs roasted. Sometimes I like fresh garlic, but sometimes, I prefer the taste of roasted. Most of the time, I don’t feel like taking everything out of the over (yes, I use it for extra storage in my teeny kitchen, hehe) and preheating it just to make a few cloves of roasted garlic. So a quick, easy way of roasting it is in a hot pan, for a few second. Smells amazing too!

  1. Hummus is a favorite around here. I like to eat my hummus with raw mushrooms. I will have to try the dill in our next batch…I usually put dill in chicken salad, but I am excited to try a new hummus flavor!!! It sounds great!

  2. Mmmm! This looks so good and I’ve been trying to lose weight lately, so I’m thinking this would be a much healthier alternative to the “ranch” dip I love dipping my veggies in! LOL!
    Thanks for sharing!
    (Saw this at the Saturday Show and Tell at Cheerios & Latte’s!)

  3. Oh my word. This hummus looks amazing. I’ve been on a serious hummus kick lately and honestly haven’t made my own yet. It looks simple and would same some cash since buying it at the store can be pretty expensive! Thanks for sharing the recipe – pinning to try!! I love your blog and am following you now! Come stop by mine if you get a second! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    Best,
    Jen @ Yummy. Healthy. Easy.

  4. Tell me about it–I go through an entire tub of TJ’s Mediterranean hummus every 3 days….making my own has definitely been more economic, and I’m loving this recipe!

  5. Pinned and can’t wait to make this! I’ll eat the entire thing in one day =o)

  10. That’s sounds like such a lovely combination. I love dips, especially the healthier homemade ones. I’m hoping to grow my own dill this year and already have some garlic growing!

  11. This is perfect timing! I’ve been meaning to delve into hummus making and just haven’t had the time to start researching recipes. Thanks so much. And by the way, this recipe looks glorious!
