When you love hummus as much as I do, then you’re going to want to try all the variations!
This roasted red pepper hummus takes something that is already extremely good and adds something as amazingly delicious as roasted red peppers to it. And you know what happens next right?
We have been eating this hummus non-stop the past few days. We had a test batch and then we made it again for the photoshoot, and I can tell you right now, it’s not enough. I need much much more of this.
This is a case where you’re almost sad when the recipe testing goes well so you don’t have to eat this for weeks on end. Cos really – I want to eat this for weeks on end!
Making this is super easy. I mean making hummus is always super easy, but this version does add in the roasted red pepper component, making it slightly more complicated than a regular hummus, but it’s totally worth it, you won’t mind a bit!
Roasting red peppers is just a case of slicing up your red pepper so that you remove the stems and core and then lying the pieces down skin side up on a parchment lined baking tray. Bake in the oven at 450°F for 25 minutes until the skins are beautifully charred.
Then you bring them out, put them into a bowl, cover the bowl with foil and let the peppers ‘steam’ in the bowl for 15 minutes, this loosens the skins nicely so they slice right off.
Then you add those deliciously fragrant roasted peppers in with all your other hummus-y ingredients to the food processor and process it up into the most delicious hummus ever!
So I am pretty darn certain you are going to LOVE this roasted red pepper hummus! It is:
- Rich in flavor
- A perfect dip!
Serve with chopped veggies and flat breads for a delicious dip, spread it on sandwiches, use it as a salad dressing or just eat it as is! Store leftovers in the fridge and consume within about 3 days.
