For an easy appetizer, try this roasted garlic hummus with flatbread.  It’s easy to make – just roast the garlic in olive oil in a foil pouch – and blend with chickpeas and a few more spices.  So easy and it will impress your guests to no end.

Roasted Garlic Hummus with Flatbread

I finally decided to create my own hummus recipe.  I love hummus and I wanted to try my hand at creating some from scratch because, it can’t be that hard, right?  

I was shocked at how great it turned out – and it was even husband approved.  My husband doesn’t like hummus – but he loved this.  He went back for seconds…twice.

This is also Weight Watcher friendly – it’s only 2 SmartPoints per serving, 1 Tablespoon.  When I was using my snack bag for eating snacks at work, I would pack my own hummus and eat it with veggies.  

It’s a healthy and delicious snack when you are in a bind or aren’t sure what different snacks you might find at different gatherings.

  • 1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt to taste
  • lemon juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 3 Tablespoons water


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

To Roast the Garlic:

  • Place the cloves of garlic on aluminum foil. Sprinkle these with olive oil.  Create a packet with the aluminum foil and bake about 20 minutes in the oven.  Let cool for about 2 minutes.

To make the hummus:

  • Place the roasted garlic and chickpeas in a food processor. Pulse until the chickpeas are completely blended.
  • Add in the olive oil, lemon juice, water,cayenne pepper and salt. Mix again in the food processor until the consistency you are looking for.

To prepare the flatbread:

  • I used naan and prepared it as the directions on the bag – from fresh.


I used naan with this recipe, which is 6 SmartPoints per piece. You could use veggies instead of naan for a low-carb alternative. Depending on the bread you choose, this will affect the SmartPoint value.

  5. Thank you so much Chelsie! I love hummus so much too, and using naan was a perfect compliment. You could also use veggies as well for a low-carb snack, but I love bread too much.

  6. I love hummus too, Heather. I have spent so much on store bought hummus, and I personally think homemade tastes better too.

  7. Thank you so much Emily. I think this would go so well with a Chicken Marsala. That sounds delicious.

    I LOOOOOVE garlic hummus, and how great would it be to make my own?! YUM, thanks for sharing this. Sounds great!

  20. I love garlic and hummus too, and the garlic is just a hint, which I loved. It tastes wonderful! If you don’t figure it out in time, nothing really happens. They open the door for you (they watch you as you figure stuff out and hand out clues) to get you out and then you can ask questions/figure out what you were missing. It was so fun though!

  21. Thank you! It’s awesome and so good. I actually liked how much because it was chunkier than store bought hummus. It’s so good!

  22. It so is! I loved it with this hummus, but it would have been great with peppers or broccoli if you needed something more low-carb. I had no idea how easy hummus was to make myself. So good!

  23. I love garlic and hummus so this is a win win for me! Also, Escape the Room sounds like a big anxiety fest for me. What happens if you don’t figure it out in an hour??

  24. This sounds delicious! I love roasted garlic and I hate how the store bought roasted garlic hummus tastes fake.

  25. Naan is the best with hummus! No pita or pita chips for me. My mom always makes her own hummus too.
