Ain’t much easier than hummus. Easy, good for you & popular. All you need is a blender. Don’t go buying that supermarket horseshit when you can whip it up fresh yourself & impress the villagers!
I used one bell pepper because that was all I had but I recommend using two – both for color & flavor.
Here is HOW YOU ROAST A RED PEPPER
Put it directly on your burner. Using tongs – turn frequently until black all over. Put in a Tupperware container & seal – to make it sweat. Once it is cool enough to touch – rub the black skin off under cool running water. Remove seeds & stem & voila!
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Makes enough for a small party.
2 roasted red peppers (see above) (reserve a few diced bits for garnish)
2 (14oz) cans chickpeas (drained)
juice of one large lemon
1/2 cup tahini
2 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne
S&P to taste
Blend everything in the blender for a minute or two until completely smooth. I had to add about 1/3 cup of water to get it to blend.
Season with S&P.
Serve with red pepper bits as garnish & loads of fresh veggies or pita wedges for dipping!
