Roasted Yellow Bell Pepper Hummus

Hummus is such an amazing food jam packed with nutrients and super versatile in how you can eat it.  I like to add it to my wraps with some fresh veggies or eat it as a dip :)  This one is a little sweet from the bell peppers and then I add cayenne pepper so it's got a kick.


2 medium size yellow bell peppers

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 can of garbanzo beans (I used a 25 oz can)

1/4 cup tahini

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 large clove of garlic quatered

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

salt and black pepper to taste


1. Cut the bell peppers into flat pieces, line on a baking tray (save a few for garnish if desired), and broil on high for about 10 minutes until there is some charring

2. Remove bell peppers from oven and place in a ziploc bag. Allow to rest there for about 10 minutes then peel off the skin

3. Add liquids to high speed blender, then the rest, blend on high

4. Serve with a few chopped bell peppers on top for garnish, sprinkle some cayenne, and drizzle a little olive oil
