Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

by | Published: December 11, 2021 | Last updated: November 22, 2022

Adding roasted peppers to the classic hummus recipe is a wonderful way to spice up the hummus and is one of my favourites. I always prefer to roast my own but if you don’t have the time most stores sell jars of roasted peppers. I am a chickpea fan and eat them most days for my protein intake but also because I love the taste and texture of this extremely nutritious dip. The hummus itself is gluten-free and can be enjoyed with sticks of celery, carrot, beetroot or gluten-free crispbread. I topped this one with pickled capers, homegrown arugula leaves and alfalfa.

What is hummus?

Hummus is an ancient recipe from the Middle East composed of chickpeas sometimes called garbanzo beans, and tahini a paste similar in texture to peanut butter that is made from sesame seeds. It is pureed into a creamy paste and is typically eaten with flatbread or pita. It can be also eaten as a dip for salad vegetables.

Chickpeas and sesame seeds are both extremely nutritious which makes hummus a nutritionist’s delight. They are also good sourcese of protein, potassium and fibre. In the US and other Western countries, hummus is eaten in many forms, and the fine texture of this purรฉe means that cooks from all over the world offer various variants depending on customs and simplicity.
