Roasted Bell Pepper Hummus

Hummus is probably one of my favorite snacks. I love the fact that its healthy, easy and versatile. You can make a whole new snack or appetizer just by adding some different flavors to hummus. I will never get tired of it.
You can see my classic hummus recipe here.

1 16 oz can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans
1/4 cup liquid from can of chickpeas
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
4 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium red peppers

1. Cut the peppers in half and take out the seeds. Lay the pepper halves on a baking sheet and bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. Turn on the oven to broil, move the peppers to a lower grate and roast the peppers for about a minute. Please be on the lookout and don’t burn the peppers. Let the peppers cool.

2. Combine all the ingredients in the blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth.

3. Serve with pita or veggies.

    That looks delicious Lyuba! I love hummus but have never made my own. I think I need to get food processor first!

  2. WillCookForSmiles says:

    Thank you! I’m sure it will work in a blender if you have one!

  3. One of my favorite snacks! Looks so good. I’ve never made my own, but it looks easy enough. What is tahini?

  4. WillCookForSmiles says:

    Thank you! Tahini is sesame paste. It’s pictured here

  5. Thanks, I’m heading over to check that out right now. Think this may get on my make my own list, rather than spend the money to buy it. Hummus can get a bit expensive.
    Have a great night!

    Oh good :) Can of tahini costs me about $6 but it stays in the fridge for a while and it lasts me through many batches of hummus!

  7. Oh I love hummus & make my own too. I have not tried adding roasted peppers. Love the idea! :)

  8. Mallery Schuplin says:

    I’ve never really eaten hummus but it looks good. I don’t know what life was like before my food processor. :)

  9. Emily Morgenstern says:

    That looks so yummy! I will definitely be trying this one out. :)

    I’ve pinned!

  10. I’m so glad you mentioned that this could be made in a blender because my food processor is not working! I’m going to try this for sure. Yum!

    Best wishes and happy Sunday,

    Two of my favorite things, hummus and roasted red peppers!!! I can’t wait to make this!

  12. Diane Balch says:

    Roasting the peppers is key. I can taste in my mind their smoky goodness. Thanks for sharing this on foodie friday.

  13. I make a roasted red pepper dip with Feta. I once made it with jarred peppers. Not even close to the flavor. I like hummus. This is going to be a fantastic dip (spread, lol) thank you for sharing.
