Roasted red pepper, Sun-dried Tomato & Basil Hummus

Submitted by: SHELBSYD

Introduction

I had a red pepper and garbanzo beans, so I thought why not try to make some yummy hummus without Tahini Paste. It worked out wonderfully! It's creamy, tangy, a little spicy, perfect for pita chips and on my turkey sandwich! I had a red pepper and garbanzo beans, so I thought why not try to make some yummy hummus without Tahini Paste.

Ingredients

    1 15 oz can of garbanzo Beans (no sodium) (reserve some of the juice from the beans)
    1 Red pepper roasted - I grilled mine and then peeled
    1 clove of garlic
    1.5 Tbsp of sun dried tomatoes (I used Trader Joes)
    5 basil leaves
    Juice of 1 lemon
    1/2 Tbsp of Cumin
    1/4 tsp of Onion Powder - basically a dash
    Salt - dash



    Note: I peeled my garbanzo beans which is time consuming, but makes your dip the constancy of a creamy mash potato. To peel, just squeeze the bean and the skin comes off.

Directions

Add all you ingredients (except for juice from Garbanzo Beans) to a mini food processor (Order: I place garlic, basil, and pepper on bottom and then tomatoes then the beans, that way everything gets chopped). Pulsate, if it is to thick then add a tsp at a time of the reserve garbanzo beans juice.

Taste to test and then refrigerate!

Enjoy!!

Note: To roast pepper - I just took out the seeds, cut flat and then place directly on grill grate, and cook until charred. Wait till cool and then the skin peels away.

Serving Size: 1.75 cups - 28 Tbsp.

  • I love hummus but don't often purchase tahini! Loved the texture and the tips regarding garbanzo skins and roasting the pepper! New family favorite! - 6/19/11

    I am so glad you like it! I was a little concerned about not adding Tahini, but it worked out perfectly! I thought it was really good on my turkey sandwich, it added allot of flavor! Peeling those beans is time consuming and a pain in the butt, but the texture is so much better, it's worth it!
