over the weekend, i was in the mood for some hummus so i whipped up a batch. one of my favorite things about hummus is that it's so versatile. you can add just about anything to it. i started out with my simple go-to base hummus recipe and then kicked up the flavor with roasted red peppers. we enjoyed it with some pita crackers and carrot sticks.
total time: 5-10 minutes
2 15 oz. cans low-sodium garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
8 oz. roasted red peppers
1 tablespoon tahini paste
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
in a food processor, combine all ingredients. puree until smooth. serve chilled with cut vegetables and/or crackers.
