Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

This is my favorite recipe for homemade hummus. It is so easy (the hardest part is finding tahini - look at health or specialty foods stores near the other nut butters or in the Middle Eastern foods). It's a staple at our house, since Mira LOVES it!! We like it too, but we eat it as a dip - not with a spoon and certainly not with our hands!
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

1 can chickpeas (Garbonzo beans), drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 c tahini (sesame paste)
1/3 c lemon juice

1/2 c roasted red peppers, chopped
1/4 tsp dried basil
dash of salt - to taste

  1. Add first four ingredients to food processor, process until smooth.
  2. Add red peppers, pulse until peppers are mostly pureed (small bits are okay).
  3. Stir in basil and salt.
Enjoy!! My favorite dippers are Sensible Portions Pita Bites Original Sea Salt - so yummy!!
