Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
-2 cans chickpeas
-1 jar roasted red peppers
-5-6 garlic cloves
-salt (3 twists on the grinder)
Add drained chickpeas to high-powered blender or food processor. Add enough water and EVOO so it will process. Add chopped roasted red peppers and a little of the juice for more flav! Then add minced garlic and blend until smooth. I added a little salt after I poured the hummus into a container. If you don't like a lot of garlic, you'll definitely want to reduce the amount in this recipe to 3 cloves.
My favorite way to eat hummus is on a wrap topped with veggies!
Green peppers, sprouts, and cucumbers
This hummus was delicious and had quite a kick!
I do realize that most hummus is made with lemon juice or tahini. Honestly, it tastes the same if you leave them out! I usually add lemon juice, but I forgot this time. As for the tahini, it's a little overrated at $10 a jar.
I'm off to read...for pleasure! :) I'm reading a book called Shades of Blue by Karen Kingsbury and I am so into it! I'm hoping to finish it by the end of the weekend! Have a nice Saturday!
