Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I absolutely love Hummus ever since I discovered it a couple of years back and since then it has become my soulmate. It’s a great alternative to popular unhealthy dips and spreads. I use it as an accompaniment with starters, in sandwiches, and in pita pockets. It’s made with ground chickpeas and seasoning.

All you need is:

a) 1 can chickpeas

b) 2-3 cloves minced garlic

c) ½ cup roasted red peppers

d) 1 tablespoon Tahini

e) 1/3 cup lime juice

f) ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

g) 1 tablespoon dried basil

h) 1 tablespoon olive oil

g) salt and pepper

Roast red peppers for a few minutes and chop fine. Mince garlic cloves. Next, combine all ingredients in a food processor and process to a smooth paste working in small batches. Add some water just to smoothen the mixture. Add salt and pepper.

You can also use fresh chickpeas soaked overnight and boiled. Use as a dip or spread.
