Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

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.

Recipe from The Royal Cook - an original!
