Roasted Garlic Hummus made with Chickpea flour

Ingredients :

3/4 cup chickpea flour (about 1/3 cup dried garbanzo beans)
3 garlic cloves, unpeeled
2 cups water
1/4 cup tahini
1-2 lemons, juiced, for 1/4 cup juice
1/4 to 1/3 cup olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Paprika and additional olive oil, to garnish (optional)

Instructions :

Heat a dry skillet over medium heat. Cook unpeeled garlic for 5-7 minutes, until softened and browned on all sides. Remove from heat and let cool before peeling off the skins. Mix flour and water and bring to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Lower the heat and simmer 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and let cool. In a food processor, puree the cooked flour mixture, peeled garlic cloves, tahini, and lemon juice until smooth. Drizzle in enough olive oil to reach desired consistency. Transfer the mixture to a serving dish. Cover and allow the flavors to meld for at least one hour. Taste again and adjust with seasonings or liquid, if needed. Garnish with additional olive oil and a sprinkling of paprika, if desired. Serve with fresh vegetables, pita bread or crackers. Red Pepper Hummus Prepare hummus as above, but add 1/2 cup roasted red peppers to the blender or food processor before pureeing.
