roasted bell pepper hummus

Roasted red pepper hummus

Hummus is a tasty way to get your daily legumes, providing a good amount of fiber and plant protein. I have already shared my basic hummus recipe here https://cuisinewithme.com/hummus, but to spice things up a bit, you can add a wide variety of herbs or spices to it. Or, like in this roasted red pepper hummus, add some vegetables for an extra kick of vitamins and phytonutrients!

I like to make this from fresh bell peppers that I roast myself. This article is an excellent guide on how to roast peppers. https://toriavey.com/how-to/roasted-bell-peppers/

You can use jarred peppers if you are short on time, though. Just look for brands that have the fewest ingredients, such as this one https://amzn.to/3ngv4dG

Serve this roasted red pepper hummus as a dip for vegetables or pita chips, use as a spread for sandwiches, or eat a couple of spoons on their own just because…!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Roast bell pepper on a parchment lined baking sheet at 400°F for about 40 minutes, turning at regular intervals so their skin gets charred on all sides (Note: you may want to roast several peppers at once, they will keep very well and can be used in other dishes and salads).
  • Place bell pepper in a glass bowl and cover. Let cool for at least 15 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, remove the skin and seeds.
  • Place all ingredients in a food processor, and blend until smooth, stopping to scrape the sides of the bowl from time to time.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings. If you wish to adjust the consistency you can add water, olive oil, or reserved liquid from the can of chickpeas.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle a tablespoon of olive oil on top and sprinkle with sumac.
