this is our favorite homemade hummus dip! it’s great with chips, pita wedges, vegetables, and whole wheat tortillas. we also make hummus wraps and sandwhiches using this. we make this almost every week…
jar of roasted red peppers (drained)
2 cans of organic garbanzo beans (washed and drained)
1/2 cup of Tahini
2 tbs of water
1/2 tbs of chili powder
pinch of salt
fresh ground black pepper
2 gloves of garlic (pressed)
pinch of red pepper flakes
2 tbs of pine nuts
fresh chopped parsley
add 2 cans of washed and rinsed garbanzo beans to a blender. then, add 2 tbs of water. add roasted red peppers (you don’t have to chop them). add tahini, 4 tbs of olive oil, chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic, red pepper flakes. then, squeeze the entire lemon over the top of mixture. puree until very smooth. you will have to periodically stop blending to stir the mixture with a spoon. final mixture should be very smooth, without clumps.
transfer to a large serving bowl or container. drizzle top of hummus with olive oil. then sprinkle pine nuts, paprika, and fresh parsley over hummus.
refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
