Red Pepper Hummus

Bring on the veggies, because this red pepper hummus is ready for dipping!

One of my favorite snacks is hummus, and it happens to be really simple to put together yourself. It’s also a great source of protein and fiber! This fresh red pepper hummus is an easy way to give a basic hummus some extra flair.

Red Pepper Hummus recipe

All you need is one 15 oz can of chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) and a red bell pepper. Cut the stem and inside out of the pepper. Drain the chickpeas. Blend these two together in a food processor until smooth.

Put the tahini, lemon juice, water, olive oil and garlic in food processor next. Sprinkle with the paprika, salt and pepper. Combine with the chickpea and red pepper blend and pulse together until it reaches the desired consistency.

I have made this recipe both with and without tahini, so that is optional. Although I will say I prefer it. You can make your own tahini at home (here is a great instructional recipe I found) or purchase some from the store like I did.

Top with pine nuts and diced red peppers. Now bring on the veggies, because this red pepper hummus is ready for dipping!

This dip hardly lasted half an hour before my guests devoured it. Guess I should make homemade hummus more often!
