Roasted Garlic Hummous

1 head garlic
1 can chickpeas, drained
1/8 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt & pepper
Extra virgin olive oil

Heat oven to 375F. Slice off the very top of the head of garlic so all cloves are exposed. Drizzle with a little olive oil, wrap in foil, and place in the oven for 35-45 minutes or until nice and soft. Allow to cool until you can handle it safely.

Grab your food processor and toss in chick peas, roasted garlic (squeezed from the cooled head, sesame oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Process on high until all ingredients are combined. Slowly add olive oil until the hummous is the constancy and texture that you like (anywhere from 1/4 - 1/2 cup.) Spoon into a dish, drizzle with olive oil and serve with pita wedges.
