1. Prepare Roasted Garlic: Cut off top third of 1 large garlic head (not the root end) to expose cloves; discard top. Place head of garlic, trimmed end up, on 10-inch square of foil. Rub garlic generously with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Gather foil ends together and close tightly. Roast in preheated 350°F oven 45 minutes, or until cloves are golden and soft. When cool enough to handle, squeeze roasted garlic cloves from skins; discard skins.
2. Place chickpeas, parsley, 2 tablespoons Roasted Garlic, water, lemon juice, curry powder, sesame oil, and hot pepper sauce, if desired, in food processor or blender. Cover; process until smooth.
3. Serve with pita wedges and vegetables, if desired.
