Roasted garlic hummus with whole wheat flatbread

It was really hard to focus on anything today. The weather warmed up finally and it was a gorgeous day out. Bright and sunny and about 70 degrees. Needless to say I did not get much done in the way of work today. But it was a really good day.
I made homemade Hummus last night from scratch, even used dried chickpeas and cooked them in the crock pot beforehand. It was great. Also make homemade whole wheat flatbread which I cooked in a skillet on the stove. Ate way too much of both today.

Roasted Garlic Hummus recipe

1 lb bag of dried chickpeas simmered in crock pot for 6 hour or until tender
1 bulb of roasted garlic peeled
1/2 cup lemon juice
water as needed
1/2 tsp dried parsley
coarse ground pepper to taste
salt to taste
1/4 cup tahini

in a food processor or blender process the chickpeas and garlic add spices tahini and lemonjuice. Add water as needed while processing to form a paste.

Serve with raw veggies, fish, meat, crackers, chips or pitas or flatbread

1 envelope of yeast
1 tsp sugar or honey
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup water room tempurature
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup of unbleached flour

in large bowl or pan of bread machine add yeast, water and sugar. Combine both flours and salt and add to the yeast mixture. Mix in bread machine or by hand or with mixer until smooth. Once dough is mixed split into 8 even balls and lay flat to rise for 2 hours in warm place or until double in size.

Heat skillet on low heat add butter or olive oil if you wish and add flattened dough to pan, turning to brown evenly on both sides. cut into pieces and serve with the fresh hummus.


  1. This looks amazingly delicious!!!!!! Can't wait to try it!!

  2. It is completely delish. If you do not have a bread machine you should get one. You can pick one up at a thrift store or off craigs list for about $10.00. It makes making bread super easy. Just throw all the ingredients in there and select dough and let it go. Take it out when you are ready to bake it. I prefer mine baked in the oven if I am making regular bread.

  3. This sounds delicious! I have never made hummus from scratch! ~Val
