Roasted Red Pepper Hummus


  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 2 whole roasted red peppers
  • 1/4 cup Tahini paste, at room temperature
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon (about 2 tbsp of juice)
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp canola oil & 2 tbsp water - or more at an equal ratio
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
  • paprika
  1. Put into the food processor the beans, roasted red peppers, tahini paste, garlic, lemon zest & juice, cumin, salt & pepper. Process for a few minutes until everything is finely chopped.
  2. Now stream in the canola oil and water mixture. You can keep adding more oil and water in an equal ratio until you have a smooth creamy consistency, you want it to be easily spreadable.
  3. Place in a container and pour 1-2 Tbsp olive oil over the hummus. Just enough to make a thin layer over the top, this will help keep the hummus moist. Sprinkle with some paprika and either serve immediately or refrigerate. Be sure to sprinkle with a bit more olive oil and paprika before you serve it.
