Red Pepper Hummus

For this easy, healthy take on traditional hummus, roasted red peppers combine with garbanzo beans and the rest of the traditional ingredients for this classic Middle Eastern recipe (garlic, tahini, lemon juice, parsley, olive oil, cumin, and cayenne). The resulting dip is not only bright-tasting, ever-so-slightly spicy, and subtly sweet, it also ends up a beautiful brick-orange color.

Instructions

  1. 1To the bowl of a food processor, add the roasted red peppers, garlic, garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, parsley, measured olive oil, water, salt, black pepper, cumin, and cayenne. Process on high until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Add more water if you prefer a hummus that’s less dense—it should be smooth, not stiff.
  2. 2Transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle with a little extra-virgin olive oil and a dash of paprika, and serve with fresh pita triangles or pita chips.
