Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I know that every practically every vegetarian already has their own hummus recipe, and that some people are even tired of hummus (gasp!), but if you don’t fall into one of those two categories, be sure to try this recipe which (in my humble opinion) is bursting with flavour from the red pepper and a few extra spices while still tasting like hummus – good old vegetarian comfort food.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
Makes About 2½ cups

2 cups chickpeas (or one 15oz. can, drained)
1 roasted red pepper (about ⅓ of a typical jar, or roast one yourself)
2 large cloves garlic, minced
½ cup tahini
¼ cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp. olive oil
½ tsp. ground coriander
½ tsp. cumin
salt and pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley (optional)
¼ tsp. paprika (optional)

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients.
  2. Process until smooth, adding more olive oil if necessary and adjust seasonings to taste.
  3. Garnish with parsley and paprika, if desired.
