Roasted red pepper hummus, packed with nutrition and flavor, is surprisingly easy to make at home.
Hummus is one of my favorite snacks. It’s filling and flavorful, the perfect dip for sliced bell peppers or carrot sticks. During the school year, it’s a staple in my lunch bag.
I used to buy hummus at Sam’s Club. It’s a reasonable price, and I would definitely recommend buying it that way if convenience is your priority. If you have a few minutes to make it at home, though, or if maximum flavor is important to you, go ahead and make it from scratch.
Making your own hummus allows you complete control over the ingredients. This recipe packs a flavor punch you won’t find in the store-bought version. The roasted red peppers are the star, with their bold smokiness and subtle sweetness. The cumin offers the perfect amount of heat, and the garlic brings it all together with it’s spicy nuttiness.
