Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I like trying out and making different flavors of hummus. I had bought red pepper hummus many times and thought I should finally try making it myself! This Roasted Red Pepper Hummus has a great flavor—roasted red peppers are blended with tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and other spices.

This hummus also has a nice, creamy consistency that’s great for spreading on pita bread or other breads (I also like it on sourdough). Or use it as a healthy dip with veggies, tortilla chips, or crackers. If you’re a hummus fan like I am, you’ll have to try this out!

Makes about 2 cups

1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained
3/4 cup roasted red bell pepper pieces from a jar, drained
1/2 cup tahini
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 to 3 Tablespoons olive oil (start with 2 and add 1 more if consistency is too thick)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
Optional: 1 to 2 Tablespoons additional finely chopped roasted red bell pepper from jar, for garnish

In a high-speed blender or food processor, add all ingredients and mix until everything is well blended.

Spoon hummus into a serving bowl and garnish with chopped roasted red bell pepper if desired. Serve with crackers, tortilla chips, fresh veggies, or warmed or toasted pita bread. Note: the garlic and pepper flavor get a little stronger the day after this hummus is made.
