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?!

Hummus is my favorite!! And everytime I buy it, I get the roasted red pepper...but I really like original too. One of these days I will attempt to make it, thanks for the recipe!

I have a love affair with hummus, but have never made it myself. Now I'm going to try it out. Thanks for this recipe! It looks delish.

Hummus has been on my "list of things to make" for quite some time. And...I just picked several lovely red peppers from my garden! This recipe looks perfect! Can't wait to try it!
