Roasted red pepper, Sun-dried Tomato & Basil HummusSubmitted by: SHELBSYD
IntroductionI 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. It worked out wonderfully! It's creamy, tangy, a little spicy, perfect for pita chips and on my turkey sandwich!
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.
Taste to test and then refrigerate!
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.
Calculation is for 14 - 2tbsp servings

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!
