Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

You all know how much I love my hummus! Plain, garlic, spinach, and now with roasted red pepper. Dip in some pita wedges or veggies, either way, enjoy this healthy dip! 

Hummus is a great snack or side dish because it is full of protein and contains tons of vitamins and minerals. What’s better is you can skip the store-bought stuff because hummus is super quick and easy to make yourself!

Check out my recipe for homemade spinach hummus and pita bread too.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Yields: approx. 4 cups


2 red bell peppers, roasted, peeled, and chopped
2 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
6 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
2 small clove of garlic, chopped
3-4 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas in a strainer under cool water. Some of the skins will fall off easily. If you have the time and patience to remove the skins, do it! This will make for a smoother hummus.

3. Combine everything in your food processor.

4. Process the hummus until it becomes smooth, about 2 minutes. As needed, scrape down the sides to incorporate each ingredient.

5. Taste and adjust seasonings. For a creamier hummus, add more olive oil or lemon juice.

To serve, spread out on a platter, sprinkle with a little paprika, and enjoy with raw vegetables or pita wedges.
To store, place in a sealed container for up to one week in the refrigerator.

  1. I love hummus, too! This looks delicious! We have a farmers market here that I have to rush to each Wednesday just to replenish my stash. But now I’ll use this recipe and save myself the trip.
