Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

A friend of mine once said, "It isn't a party unless there is hummus!"

I am not in disagreement with this statement. Hummus completely rocks. Roasted red peppers are pretty amazing too.  I love roasting red peppers in the fall.  They smell amazing while roasting in your oven.  

We served this with blue tortilla chips and gluten free crackers.  It tasted fantastic!

I kicked it up a bit with a bit of Carrot Karma by Intensity Academy Gourmet Sauces.  I just put a teaspoon in it and it turned out amazing. 

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Recipe
Adapted from Closet Cooking
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 roasted red peppers
  • 2 tbsp. tahini
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper 
  • 1 tsp. hot sauce (I used Carrot Karma)

  • Puree everything in a food processor adding water if necessary to bring it to the consistency that you like and salt and pepper to taste.
To roast peppers: Put 2 peppers in the oven at like 500 degrees.  Roast until skin is just starting to bubble and get blackened.  Remove from oven and put peppers in a gallon sized baggie and seal.  Wait about 10 minutes and you should be able to remove the skins.
