Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Recipe

The Yummiest Dip Ever for Pepper Lovers

Delicious flavor, incredibly easy...

Love the taste of peppers? Love to chow down on hummus?

Have I got a treat for you.


The Ingredients

one can (15.5 oz) garbonzo beans (also called chickpeas) DRAINED (keep juice)

One 12 oz. jar roasted red bell peppers, drained

1/2 cup cashews, roughly chopped

1 garlic clove, smashed

1/2 cup tahini (tahini is sesame seed butter... however, if I don't have any in the pantry, I use creamy peanut butter... don't tell anybody, okay?)

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/2 tsp. cumin powder

salt and pepper, to taste

How To Make It

It couldn't be easier. Put everything into your food processor EXCEPT the cashews.

Process until smooth. If it seems too think, you can add in a little of the juice from the garbanzo beans. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Wish I could tell you why it varies, but I don't know the answer.

Once it is smooth, then add in the cashews and process again. It will be "crunchy" looking -- this is part of its appeal.

TASTE FOR SEASONING. The acidity of lemons varies -- sometimes I need to add a little salt, sometimes not. This dip should have a bright flavor.

Scoop into serving bowl. Serve at room temperature, or cover and put in fridge. It will last for a week or so... or I guess it will. It's never lasted that long around here.

Tastes great with crackers, or cut up pita bread.

Hi VL,

Yeah, hummus is one of those dishes to change around till you find the mix that matches your taste buds. I love that it tastes so good... and is healthy to boot.

Oh, this sounds delish! I can't wait to try it out for our annual BBQ party this summer. I love hummus, and I prefer the assorted-flavor variations--so much more interesting.

Voted up & shared!

I'm glad to have this recipe! I've bought red pepper hummus in the store, but I'd love to make my own. This looks great. I have some Tahini from my last hummus experiment (LOL), but I found that its flavor wasn't something I was crazy about. Peanut butter, I'm sure, works just as well and is much cheaper! I'm going to try this recipe! Sharing it with others, too!
