  • ¾ cup roasted red peppers
    We used canned roasted peppers.
  • 15 oz chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
    rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
    juice from one large lemon
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • cayenne pepper (optional)
    (just a pinch- optional)
  • Salt
    to taste
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil or water
    to help loosen up the hummus.
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil for serving (optional)


  • Place roasted red peppers, chick peas, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, cumin, cayenne and salt to taste and blend until smooth. If you find your hummus is too dry you can add an additional 2 tablespoons of water or olive oil to loosen it up.
  • Place your red pepper hummus in a flat bowl and make a well with the back of your spoon. Drizzle olive oil over the red pepper hummus.
  • Enjoy!


You will need to scrape down the sides of your food processor a few times during the process. You may need to add either a couple of tablespoons of water or olive oil to get it moving in the food processor.
