Easy Red Pepper Hummus

Red Pepper Hummus
Maryse Chevriere


  • One  16 1/2-ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • large red bell peppers, seeded and roughly chopped
  • large garlic cloves, minced
  •   Juice of 1 lemon
  •   Salt and pepper, to taste

For when you want the red pepper flavor, but don't want to go to the trouble of roasting.


In a food processor, add the chickpeas, chopped bell peppers (the smaller the better, and the smoother consistency you'll get), minced garlic, and lemon juice. Purée until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve with pita chips or crudité.
