hello all! hope you're having a fine weekend. i was feeling bad for not posting in days and days when i have so many things to say, so here i am with a bonus weekend post. and it's something i've been dying to tell you about. a new discovery. and it is called roasted red pepper hummus.
ps. i whip it up with what i have on hand, so there's no tahini to make it traditional hummus. but i still think it tastes terrific.
roasted red pepper hummus
adapted from pinch my salt
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 red bell pepper, roasted, peeled, and seeded*
1 clove garlic, minced
2 T. lemon juice
2 to 4 T. olive oil (depending on how creamy you like it)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. honey, or more to taste
pinch of cumin
combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. leftovers can be stored in the fridge for a few days. enjoy with crackers, veggies, chips, on flatbread, with pizza, or however you can manage. i was eating it with a spoon.
*roast your own red pepper at home! it's my favorite part! i followed sheena's perfect instructions. and now i'm obsessing over it. for reals. why not have roasted red pepper on everything?!
