makes: 16 servings
1- 6oz jar of roasted red peppers
1 small onion, peeled and halved
1 whole head of garlic

Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Remove the skin from the head of garlic and wrap in foil. Place the garlic and onions on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes turning onions over half way through. Remove onions and set aside. Return garlic and cook an additional 15 minutes.
Let garlic cool for 10 minutes. Separate the cloves and squeeze the garlic out, discarding skins.
Place roasted red pepper, onion and garlic in a food processor, process until fairly smooth. Add cream cheese, cumin, ground red pepper and process until smooth. Fold in yogurt. Spoon the dip into a bowl and stir in parsley. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Yields 2 cups. Serve with whole-wheat crackers or sesame breadsticks.
