Servings 6 servings
- 1 head garlic
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil plus extra for drizzling on the garlic before roasting. You may need more depending on your consistency preferences
- 15 oz white beans or Cannellini beans
- 1 small lemon juiced
- 1/2 teaspoons cumin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice the head of garlic in half horizontally to expose the cloves. Drizzle with a little olive oil and wrap in foil. Bake 30-40 minutes or until fragrant and cloves are golden in color. Then remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
Into the bowl of a food processor, pour in beans, lemon juice, cumin, salt and pepper. Squeeze both halves of the roasted garlic head into the food processor. The roasted cloves should pop right out. Turn machine on and drizzle in 3 Tablespoons of olive oil, processing until desired consistency has been reached. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking-more salt, more cumin, more lemon juice, etc.
Spoon onto serving platter. Top with another drizzle of olive oil, pine nuts and parsley, if desired. Serve with pita bread, vegetables or crackers. Also delicious on a sandwich or wrap.
