I don’t know about you but hummus is one a staple food in our house! We eat it almost every day slathered on bread, with veggies for dipping, or (my personal favourite) as a condiment alongside grilled meats and veggies for lunch or dinner. We enjoy several different brands of store-bought hummus in a pinch, but we always prefer homemade hummus because it’s easy to make as healthy and flavourful as we please – this Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is no exception!
Homemade hummus is, hands down, my favourite way to use chickpeas and I’ve already shared all different kinds of hummus with you here on The Busy Baker, including Garlic Parmesan White Bean Hummus, Roasted Garlic Hummus, and even my Red Lentil Curry Hummus. This Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is my new favourite hummus variety because the flavour of roasted red peppers is just out of this world!!!
How to make Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
This Hummus recipe is so easy to make. Just follow these steps:
- Rinse and drain your chickpeas (it’s easiest to use the canned variety).
- Add the chickpeas to your food processor, along with all the other hummus ingredients.
- Add the jarred roasted red peppers (or, roast your own using my instructions below).
- Process on high speed while you drizzle in the olive oil until smooth.
- Serve with your favourite pita chips or veggies for dipping!
