Hummus With Red Pepper

Roasted red bell peppers, lemon and garlic make this hummus so flavorful….

Mmmm I love hummus but it is usually so expensive in the stores so why not make your own and know it will be fresh! I also love red peppers so the addition to the beans gives it a nice kick. It’s a perfect snack that is healthy, satisfying and full of protein. I eat it almost daily so my recipe is a good size batch that should last a week in the fridge.

Gluten-free (Make sure all ingredients are labeled to be in a gluten-free facility if you’re gluten sensitive, in case of cross contamination)


Two 15 oz cans organic garbanzo beans drained and rinsed

2/3 cup of roasted red peppers (you can just buy a jar at the grocery store-don’t use the liquid)

2 large garlic cloves

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp hot pepper paste (I use Amore hot pepper paste)

Juice from 1 lemon (to desired taste)

1 tsp fine sea salt

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

Throw all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until puréed and creamy, scraping down the sides as necessary. This will take a couple minutes. Serve with carrots or homemade tortilla chips or eat by itself.

    Brandi, wonderful recipe. I need to begin to use my food processor. I love roasted red peppers and garbanzo beans. Another recipe I am definitely going to try soon. I have to go back to work on Wednesday and it is the busy time at the college with spring classes beginning. Hopefully I can try making this before I go back and enjoy eating it with the chocolate truffles 🙂
