Roasted Garlic Hummus

I was searching for another hummus recipe to make for our small group so when I came across on this recipe on Beantown Baker I knew it was going to be great.  Who doesn't love roasted garlic?

1 (14 oz) can chickpeas (drained)
3 Tbsp tahini
4 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup warm water
2 heads roasted garlic
1 lemon (juiced)
1/2 tsp sea salt or Kosher salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

For a smoother hummus peel the shell off of each chickpea.  This is optional.

Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves into the food processor.  Add the chickpeas, tahini, water, lemon juice, salt, cumin and cayenne.  Blend until smooth.  Add olive oil one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.  Refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour before serving.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a bit of cayenne and serve with pita, pita chips and raw vegetables.
