  • 3 cups drained chickpeas, canned (reserve 2 tablespoons of liquid)
  • 3 red bell peppers
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced garlic, mashed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika


  1. Preheat your oven to 420 degrees.
  2. Put the peppers onto a baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes, flipping occasionally, until their skins are blistered and blackened. Remove the peppers and place into a plastic bag for about 20 minutes, and then remove their skins and seeds once cool enough to handle.
  3. Transfer the roasted peppers to a food processor along with the chickpeas, their reserved liquid, garlic, salt, crushed red pepper, lemon juice, olive oil and spices. Blend the mixture until smooth and then serve.
