Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Nothing is better than easy and just about nothing is better than Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. I found this recipe from Blendtec and I made it in my own Blendtec.

You’ll just need Tahini and if you don’t have any, I recommend just making it yourself with some sesame seeds and olive oil.
I also decided to roast my own peppers. To do that, turn your oven 425°. Cut your peppers with the seeds excluded and place on a jelly roll pan. Sprinkle with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 25 min or until the are completely soft. I left the skin on mine before I blended but you can choose to remove it.
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 1 clove garlic, quartered
- 1 (15 oz) can garbanzo beans, drained and 3-4 tbsp liquid reserved
- 1 cup roasted red peppers
- 1⁄2 tsp kosher salt
- 1⁄2 tsp ground cumin
- 1⁄8 tsp cayenne pepper
- Add ingredients, including the reserved garbanzo bean liquid, to your blender jar. Blend on med for 40 seconds or until completely blended. Garnish and serve. When not being devoured, place in an airtight container in the fridge.
This recipe was gone in a day. You’ll want to store it in the fridge and in an airtight container and it’ll keep for 2 weeks, easy. It’s best served with pita chips or soft pita bread. Another delicious thing to eat with it is Feta Cheese and some Kalamata Olives!
