Roasted Garlic Variation: Preheat oven to 400F (204C). Slice the tip off the top of the garlic head exposing the garlic. Remove any loose papery skin while keeping the garlic head in tact. Set the garlic head in a piece of foil and drizzle with about a half teaspoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Wrap in the foil tightly, set on a small sheet pan and roast for about 40-50 minutes. When done the garlic will be soft, fragrant and some will be lightly browned. Cool slightly, then squeeze the garlic out of its papery covering. Now it's ready to be used in your hummus.
