Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
I would go to our favorite grocer in Iowa, and splurge. It was the most expensive hummus on the display. I wish I would have known then how easy it was to make. I would drop close to $4 for a tiny little tub of it. No more sister!
2 cans Garbanzo Beans
2 Roasted Red Peppers
*or several little tri-colored peppers roasted
Juice of 1or 2 lemons (or to taste)
*to roast peppers, just place them on a cookie sheet in the oven at 400-425 and watch closely. They will roast up within about 10-20 minutes depending on their size. If you are a lucky girl with a gas range, you can totally do them stove top by holding them over the open flame with some tongs. Some people do them on the grill.
Taste it once more to make sure you are loving all the flavors. Add whatever else is needed - more lemon juice, more olive oil, - maybe nothing!
Serve with fresh veggies for a delicious snack or appetizer. Also great on Pita Chips!
