Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I love hummus for a snack with celery or pita chips. It's also great spread on a sandwich with your other favorite things: Tofurky deli slices, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, whatever you like. Why I buy it premade sometimes is just crazy because it's so simple and quick to make on your own. Here is a recipe for my last batch of hummus with lame photos.

  • 1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 2/3 cup of lemon juice
  • 1 entire roasted red pepper (from a jar or freshly roasted)
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 12 teaspoon salt (add more to taste)

In a food processor pulse the garbanzo beans for a moment, then add cannellini beans and puree.

Add the rest of the ingredients and puree until you get the desired consistency. I like my hummus really smooth. You may need to scrape down the bowl of your food processor a few times during this process.
