Creamy hummus is a delicious, healthy snack. Roasted red peppers add a subtle sweetness in this vegan, nut-free, oil-free recipe. You can roast your own or use a jarred version for quick cooking. This gluten-free dip is great with Quick Whole Wheat Flatbread, Chickpea Flatbread Pizza, or smeared over Garden Veggie Burgers.
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.
