Recipe: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus


  • 2 large red bell peppers
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C). Place the whole red peppers on a baking sheet and roast them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the skin is blistered and charred.
  2. Remove the peppers from the oven and transfer them to a bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the peppers steam for about 10 minutes. This will make it easier to peel off the skin.
  3. Once the peppers have cooled, peel off the skin, remove the seeds, and chop the flesh.
  4. In a food processor, combine the roasted red peppers, chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, minced garlic, ground cumin, paprika, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth and creamy.
  5. Taste and adjust the seasoning as desired. If the hummus is too thick, add a little water or extra olive oil to achieve the desired consistency.
  6. Transfer the roasted red pepper hummus to a serving bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with paprika for garnish.
  7. Serve with pita bread, crackers, or fresh vegetable sticks for dipping.
