Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

2 Cups
15 min

I like trying out and making different flavors of hummus. I like all kinds of the many varieties there are out there! I had bought red pepper hummus many times and thought I should finally try making it myself! This Roasted Red Pepper Hummus has a great flavor—roasted red peppers are blended with tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and other spices.

This hummus also has a nice, creamy consistency that’s great for spreading on pita bread or other breads (I also like it on sourdough). Or use it as a healthy dip with veggies, tortilla chips, or crackers. If you’re a hummus fan like I am, you’ll have to try this out!
