Excited to share another recipe with you in collaboration with KitchenAid®. This time it’s one of my go-to healthy snacks: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. I am actually allergic to sesame so it makes enjoying hummus very hard since most hummus has tahini paste (sesame paste) in it. So a while back I started making my own hummus to be able to enjoy it at home and I started to play with flavors. Roasted red pepper has been one of my hands down favorite flavors of all the ones I have tried to make. It also turns this beautiful orange/red color so it makes for a fun presentation. Whether I am making it for just me and Blake, a healthy appetizer during holiday parties, or for football Sunday, it’s a super fast and easy appetizer to whip up with no cooking needed. A big part of the recipe is getting the texture right and the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series Blender does it with ease. I even got to use the Patented Flex Edge Tamper to make sure to scrape the sides and that everything was completely combined. It comes out perfectly creamy and blended and it’s been one of my favorite healthy snack recipes to make. So here is the recipe that has been a go-to of mine for a while. Hope you enjoy it and of course always let me know if you make it yourself! Would love to know if you love it too.
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Makes about 3 cups
2 (15 oz) cans chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
2 tablespoons minced garlic (you can add less if you are not a big garlic fan)
1 jar roasted bell peppers (I use about 2-3 peppers from the jar for the recipe and chop)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon smoked sweet paprika
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Vegetables and pita chips for serving
- In blender, combine chickpeas, garlic, bell peppers, lemon juice, cumin and paprika and pulse until the everything is well blended.
- Then with the blender running and the pour top open, slowly pour your olive oil until it’s fully combined and your texture is perfect. Add salt and pepper. Turn off blender and taste for seasoning. Add more salt and pepper as needed. Pour the hummus into a serving dish and garnish with vegetables and pita chips. Enjoy!
