Baked hummus, it’s a thing. A thing you’re gonna become totally obsessed with. Just like the whole roasted garlic foodie obsession. And speaking of obsessions, I have a little confession. Actually I have several, right now and they all have to do with food, duh.
Confession One ….. I am a closet hummus addict. Like majorly obsessed. In fact, it’s the reason why I’ve only made one homemade hummus recipe so far. Because Making large batches is dangerous for me! As in it will be gone within a day and I’d probably turn into a chickpea. My family knows this but no one else really does. I mean, it’s even hard for me to share my hummus snacks with my husband. Poor guy.
Confession Two … I have an obsession with roasted garlic, but I don’t make it often because then our house and my clothes smell like the whole foods hot bar for days! And that’s all good but not when you’re trying to fall asleep at night but you swear your hair still smells like garlic. Okay I might be a tad dramatic, but you can relate, right?
Confession Three…. I have been on a mission (a secret mission) for YEARS to try to get my dad to like hummus. He makes fun at me at all our family dinners because of my “tiny” addiction. His exact words are “hummus tastes like paste.” Um, no dad. Not the hummus I eat! And definitely not this roasted garlic baked hummus recipe.
With all these confessions laid out all the table, it’s probably best I do something productive with them. Don’t you think?
