  • 5 medium red bell pepper
  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas
  • 2 tablespoons Tahini
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup water, as needed


How It’s Done:

Preheat your broiler to “High”.

To Roast the Peppers: Cut the bell peppers in half from stem to base. Use your hands to scoop out the stems, seeds, and ribs. Place the peppers, cut-side-down, on a large baking sheet. Place the peppers on the top rack of your oven, right under the broiler. Broil for about 15 minutes, until the peppers are very charred. Immediately transfer the peppers to a sealable container or a plastic bag. Cover and let steam a few minutes. This will make it easier to remove the skins.

To finish the Hummus: Drain and rinse the chickpeas. When the peppers are cool enough to handle, peel off the black skin and discard. Place the chickpeas, peppers, tahini, lemon juice, paprika, cumin, coriander, cayenne (if using), salt, and garlic in a food processor or high-speed blender. Add 1/4 cup of water to get started. Puree until smooth. Add more water, if needed, to get a smooth consistency.

Serve and enjoy!

Chef Katie’s Tips:

Pepper Variety: You can use any variety of peppers for this hummus. Yellow or orange bell peppers provide fun colors, while poblanos and banana peppers bring extra heat. Serve warm for the ultimate flavor experience.
