Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I always love making hummus as it is so easy and can always play around with different twists that rarely go wrong, although some are certainly better than others. I often eat it for lunch or serve it as an appetizer with pita and vegetables. This particular hummus is likely the best I have made. It is silky, boasts garlic and red pepper flavor and well is simply delicious.

190z chickpeas or garbanzo beans
3 large pieces of roasted red pepper (jar) or 1 whole roasted red pepper (roasted yourself
2 cloves garlic
3 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp cumin
1 T tahini paste (optional
1 T olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

In a food processor blend together all the ingredients except the olive oil. Once well belnded add the olive oil in a stream while food processor on. Blend until silky smooth. Adjust flavoring to your desire (more roasted red pepper etc...).

You need to let the hummus cool in the fridge for a couple hours in order to really get the full taste.

Makes about 2 cups.
