I don’t know where to start in describing the deliciousness of this Rosemary with Roasted Garlic Hummus recipe.
It’s like a perfect marriage between a traditional dipping oil that is served with bread at an Italian restaurant and classic hummus.
And, it is incredibly easy it is to make and by far, the easiest hummus I have ever made.
It’s a perfect blend of flavors and I don’t really think it is something I could have created without the help of the oil I used.
The nice folks at Pastamore’ sent me samples of their gourmet Rosemary with Roasted Garlic Dipping Oil to use in creating a new recipe.
I actually made several recipes with it, this one, Creamy Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce, Sweet Potato Fettuccine and Creamy Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Sauce and Rosemary and Roasted Garlic Chickpeas.
It’s an all-natural, GMO-free, gluten-free and vegan dipping oil that is “extra virgin olive oil combined with roasted garlic, herbs and Dijon mustard to create the perfect bread dipping oil”.
It is generously filled with a herb paste made from rosemary, sage, parsley, black pepper, cayenne and chili pepper.
One of the reasons I really liked this brand is because Pastamore’ was started over 16 years ago by participating in local Farmer’s Markets in Colorado and this is exactly the kind of product you would find at a Farmer’s Market.
I just love when I can buy local products like this from my Farmer’s Market. And, they believe it giving back to their communities and contribute to their local Food Bank…very nice!
Now unless I just never paid attention, I don’t remember ever seeing this kind of selection of gourmet oils, vinegars, gluten-free pasta and marinades when I shop at Whole Foods.

Now, let’s get to the recipe I made with the Rosemary with Roasted Garlic Dipping Oil.
When I normally make hummus, I will add anywhere from 5 – 10 different ingredients depending on the variety I’m making.
The great thing about this “recipe”, if we can even call it that, is I didn’t want to add anything extra to it because all the flavor and seasonings were already in the dipping oil.
So you basically can make this as fast as you can open a can of chickpeas because all you have to do is add your chickpeas, the dipping oil and a little Himalayan pink salt into a food processor and that’s it!
All the hard work has already been done in the dipping oil.
Tip #1: This recipe will make approximately 1 – 2 servings.
Tip #3: You can use your favorite chip or cracker with this recipe.
