Ingredients

  • 2 large red bell peppers, roasted and peeled
  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Start by roasting the red bell peppers. Place them on a baking sheet and broil on high until the skin is charred and blistered. Transfer them to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let them cool. Once cooled, peel the skin, remove the seeds, and chop the flesh.
  2. In a food processor, combine the roasted red peppers, chickpeas, garlic, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Taste and adjust the seasonings if needed. If the hummus is too thick, you can add a bit of water or more olive oil to achieve the desired consistency.
  4. Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl, drizzle with a little extra olive oil, and sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
