ROASTED RED PEPPER HUMMUS
Serves: 4-6 Prep time: 5-7 minutes Processing time: 3 minutes
6 oz. (about ¾ cup) roasted jarred red bell peppers, drained
1 (15 oz.) can organic chick peas, drained and rinsed
3 Tbl. fresh lemon juice
3 Tbl. tahini paste
2 cloves garlic, pressed
½ tsp. sea salt, or more to taste
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
¼ tsp. cumin
1 Tbl. Barbàra Extra Virgin Olive Oil + more to drizzle on top
Assorted fresh vegetables or pita chips
1) Place chick peas, roasted bell peppers, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, salt, cumin, cayenne and olive oil in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse 1 minute, then pause and scrape down the sides of the processor. Continue to process on low speed until smooth (approx. 30 seconds to 1 minute).
2) Place hummus in a bowl and drizzle with additional olive oil if desired. Serve with fresh veggies or pita chips. Store left-over hummus in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
*Note: consistency will firm up if hummus is refrigerated for 2-3 hours prior to serving.
