red_pepper_hummusThis delicious recipe comes from antoniotahhan.com/tag/chickpeas.  High in protein and fiber.  Great as a dip for vegetables or as a spread for sandwiches. Mmmmm.

Ingredients

2 15.5 oz. can of chickpeas, rinsed
2 garlic cloves
3 tbsp. lemon juice, freshly squeezed
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp. tahini
3 roasted red bell peppers
dash of salt

Putting them all together

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is a just as easy to put together as the Traditional Hummus. Start out with the same ingredients, but go a bit shy with the lemon juice and olive oil because of the natural moisture in the bell peppers. Pat dry your roasted red peppers and process along with the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Finally, transfer into a bowl and mix in the tahini by hand; cover and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Spread the hummus in a shallow bowl and garnish with pieces of roasted red peppers and a drizzle of your favorite extra virgin olive oil. You can serve this with warm pita bread or even as a spread inside a sandwich for a healthy and exotic appeal.
