Roasted Red Pepper Hummus- New Food Friday

With my new restrictions in my diet I have been searching for snack foods that I like that are dairy, gluten and soy free. Hummus is one of those snack foods I love. But I could go broke buying it at $5 a tub. Also some hummus that you find in the store are made with soybean oil. So my coworker gave me this basic recipe for making yummy yummy hummus. I have made it twice so far and I love it!

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
1- 15 oz can of cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp garlic cloves
3 Tbsp lemon juice (I like mine pretty tart, so you can start with 1-2 Tbsp and add more at the end if you think it needs it)
4 slices Roasted Red Bell Peppers
2 tsp salt
pepper to taste

(After I prepared this for the first time my coworker told me that it should also have tahini in it, I didn't add any because I liked it so much the first time)

Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Process until smooth. Taste and add additional lemon juice, salt, pepper or olive oil to taste.

Chill and serve with crackers or pita bread.

I like mine with Almond Nut Thins because they are gluten free.

I will be linking up with some of these parties!

This looks so good and good for you, too. It's good to know that hummus can be made without tahini.

No kidding-about an hour ago I was thinking I needed to google a roasted red pepper hummus recipe! It's meant to be. :) Now if I could find chickpeas at the store...should they be with the other canned beans (pinto, kidney, etc.)?

Thanks for posting this recipe. It was so good when I tried it at your house, I want to make it! And Melanie yes, the garbanzos are by the other canned beans, but usually up high and there aren't as many cans of them.
Zoe, I appreciate all the menu items.
Hope it goes well!

I finally made this today and it's now our favorite! I went light on the garlic, olive oil and salt and it's perfect for us! I really try to avoid preservatives so I also started with dried chickpeas and roasted my own fresh red peppers. Thanks for this recipe--it's going into our family book of "keepers"!
