Red Pepper Hummus Recipe

Paired with a charcuterie platter, some cheese, or even just some flatbreads, you can’t go wrong with a classic hummus dip!

If you’ve always wondered how to make your own hummus, then this red pepper hummus recipe is right up your street! Add home-grown peppers for an authentic Mediterranean touch that your taste buds will thank you for.

Servings: Makes around 6 portions (or 2 if you’re really hungry!)

You will need:

  • Baking tray
  • Food processor
  • Mixing bowl

Ingredients:

  • Chick peas (400g)
  • Red peppers (2)
  • Tahini paste (45g)
  • Garlic cloves (2 or 3, depending on personal taste!)
  • Chilli Powder (1tsp)
  • Lemon juice (1 tbsp)

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Instructions:

  1. Prepare your peppers – To prepare your peppers, cut into strips and put them under a grill for 10-15 minutes until lightly charred.
  2. Drain your Chick Peas – Drain your chickpeas and pop into your food processor. Once your peppers are ready, add those too and blitz until combined
  3. Add your liquids – At this point, the mixture will look quite dry. Add a glug of oil and your lemon juice and blitz again. You can keep adding oil if you’re not happy with the consistency (a little will go a long way so be careful how much you add!)
  4. Spices and herbs – Add your garlic, chilli powder, tahini, salt and pepper to taste. Once fully combined, it’s ready to eat!

Tips:

How do you store the hummus?

  • Keep in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.

Goes well with…

  • Pair with any vegetable like carrots or cucumber for a refreshing snack, or use within flatbreads and wraps in place of your favourite sauce!
