It’s easy to make roasted red pepper hummus at home with this quick, healthy, tasty recipe! So much better than store-bought!
2 15-ounce cans chickpeas
1 12-ounce jar roasted red peppers (or two large, whole roasted red peppers – seeds and stem removed, then chopped)
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice (may sub vinegar in a pinch)
pita chips, tortilla chips, fresh veggies, or crackers for serving
Add chickpeas, red peppers, garlic, italian seasoning, salt, olive oil, water, and lemon juice to a food processor or high powered blender. Pulse until pureed as smooth as possible. (may still be a little bit chunky, that’s okay)
Transfer to a serving dish and serve with pita chips (or other serving options such as those mentioned in the ingredients). Garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro and minced garlic if desired. Store in airtight container, chilled, up to 2 weeks.
