Hum, Hum, Hummus!

Ok, so it’s not cake or sugary but there are times when Red Pepper Hummuswe need to eat something else around this place.  One of my daughters is vegan and I have been researching and experimenting with new vegan & vegetarian recipes.  It’s a new year and “some” of us could stand to lose a few pounds and eat healthier in general.    I have been working on different types of hummus and so far we like the results.

The type I made didn’t have any tahini (ground sesame seeds etc)  in it.  Basically I took:

1 can of garbanzo beans/chick peas

1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

2-3 heaped teaspoons of roasted red pepper paste

1/2 teaspoon of cumin (add more to your own taste)

pinch of kosher salt

1 heaped teaspoon of crushed garlic

Add all of the ingredients to your food processor or use a hand blender/wand, either will work.  Blend until you reach a consistency that you like and serve with pita chips or hot naan bread cut into triangles which is how I served it.

Healthy and so quick to make. I made this batch five minutes before I left for a New Years Party and everyone loved it!
