With summer just around the corner, I'm on the look out for snacks and meals that won't heat up the house. This Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is a perfect snack or meal for the summer time, or anytime. Now if only I could get the kids to eat more than 1 or 2 bites of it...
I served my Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with pita crackers (A. Maze. Ing!). Because the kids don't dig hummus (what's the matter with them!?), I shared some with a neighbor. She couldn't stop raving about it and said her babysitter loved it as well.
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained with liquid reserved
2 tablespoons tihini
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/3 cup roasted red pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic
Place all ingredients (except liquid from the beans) in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth, adding liquid from the bean, as needed, to reach desired consistency. Store in the refrigerator.
