This hummus has a shockingly strong taste of garlic. Additionally, it seems to get stronger the longer this sits in your fridge. Less than 24 hours after I made this recipe, the garlic seemed to have taken on a life of its own. If you’re not a huge fan, don’t even bother trying. If you like garlic but don’t love it, I would recommend cutting down on the garlic by at least half. Personally, I think the recipe is terrific. Then again, I’m a garlic lover.

I ate this with freshly baked Pita Bread. It would also work great as a spread on a sandwich or as a dip with crackers or veggies.

If you don’t like a strong garlic flavored hummus, you may want to try a plain White Bean Hummus recipe instead.
