Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
- Prep Time:
- Ready Time:
- one can of chick peas rinsed
- 1/2 cup yogurt I like greek yugurt
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 2 cloves of garlic chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chopped roasted red peppers
- 1/2 cup tahini
- paprika, parsley and olive oil to garnish
In a food processor add the chick peas (leave a few behind for garnish), lemon juice, yogurt, chopped garlic,roasted red peppers, tahini and a pinch of salt. Now start to blitz it for about one min then check for seasoning and consistency. If it is too thick you can add a little water. Continue to blitz for another min until it is a real smooth paste.
To serve spread out on a plate using a rubber spatula or a large spoon spin the plate to make a groove around the edges as you can see in the photo.
Now pimp it up with a few of the loose chick peas in the middle, drizzle some olive oil, parsley and add some paprika on the edges. This is just my suggestion you can add toasted pine nuts, red pepper strips, olives anything you desire to finish off your plating.
This is perfect to keep around for when unexpected guests drop by this is always a favorite.
Serve with pita bread/chips, crackers, put it on meat everything goes with the KING of all dips!
