Recipe: Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Red Pepper Hummus FeatureSome hummus recipes call for a long list of ingredients and some items (like Tahini) are not always readily available in your fridge or pantry. Here’s an easy and very tasty hummus recipe with just a few ingredients.  However, each of those ingredients needs to be of the highest quality, especially when it comes to the olive oil!  We also used our very own Deliza roasted red peppers available in our store. It doesn’t get easier than “throw all ingredients into a food processor and you’re done.”  Once you taste this, you’ll discover how easy it is to make your own fresh hummus and you’ll wonder why you ever needed a recipe with over 15 ingredients!

  1. Hey there ! Can’t wait to try this recipe but just wanted to suggest deshelling the chickpeas first. The texture is much smoother when making it homemade and you will be able to digest the beans with this method. Thanks !
