Roasted Pepper Hummus

A couple of weeks ago I woke up craving homemade hummus, so I decided to make some. When I was getting all the ingredients ready, I noticed a jar of roasted peppers next to the tahini. So, I made roasted pepper hummus and it was fantastic!

I enjoy making dips like this for a quick snack because they are healthy and easy to prepare.



  • 1 can garbanzo beans (chick peas), drained
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 5 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 roasted red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Pinch chili powder


  1. Place the garbanzo beans and garlic in a food processor and mix for about 20 seconds.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and process to form a smooth paste.
  3. Serve or store in a covered container in the refrigerator.

    The roasted red pepper gives this hummus such a lovely color. I miss this dip (can’t have due to reaction to chickpeas) but there’s always your white bean-roasted pepper dip!

    I have two social events this weekend and love getting ideas like this, when I feel ‘food’ overload and brain dead from cooking so much! I love hummus, and this would be perfect for the socials!

    I LOVE roasted pepper hummus and yours looks glorious. I cook big batches of garbanzos and make the hummus bit by bit during the week. It took me quite a while to realize that the little bit of water makes a big difference in the finished product. Keep the good recipies coming! I’m definitely going to try your white bean and roasted pepper – never done that one, and I actually have some cooked white beans on hand right now.

    I LOVE Hummus and this looks great.I’ve made it thrice in a week and am planning on another round…..I find the best hummus comes from taking the skins off the chickpeas and gently roasting both the chickpeas and the garlic!

    i can eat roasted peppers all by themselves, but incorporating them into my favorite of all spreads is an awesome idea. what a beautiful color it becomes as well! nicely done, erica. :)

    Your hummus looks so good, and you’re right, it’s really delicious with roasted red pepper! With some raw veggies or pita chips, this is really the perfect snack!

    Wow, this is almost identical to the way I make my hummus (minus the red pepper). I love what the cumin and chili powder (I use a pinch of cayenne) do to really perk everything up. I can’t wait to try it with homemade roasted red peppers too. What do you like to eat it with?

    You know I may do the same! I have had a jar of roasted peppers forever in the cupboard! I like the color of your hummos and I bet it tastes great! It is hard for me to veer away from the traditional recipe (I feel “guilty”) but I am gonna do it, by golly!
