Directions

  1. In an electric blender or food processor, puree the chickpeas, red peppers, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, cumin, cayenne, and salt. Process, using long pulses, until the mixture is fairly smooth, and slightly fluffy. Make sure to scrape the mixture off the sides of the food processor or blender in between pulses. Transfer to a serving bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. (The hummus can be made up to 3 days ahead and refrigerated. Return to room temperature before serving.)
  2. Sprinkle the hummus with the chopped parsley before serving.

Mmmmmm! This recipe is excellent. I roasted my own peppers (To do this, place pepper directly on the burner over a medium flame until skin is blackened on all sides, toss in ice water, remove skin, and voila! roasted red pepper) Soooo good! and much cheaper than store bought.

I am not a big fan of hummus but this recipe was great! I made this for my boyfriend who loves hummus, this was the best he ever had. I liked it because of the easiness and quickness - everything goes into the blender! I also liked the flavor that the roasted red pepers gave. The only hard part was finding the tahini at the grocery store. I was lucky to find someone who knew what tahini was. Prior to this recipe I did not know what it was. It is (if you don't know) ground sesame seeds. It is paste-like and comes in a jar.

This is my favorite hummus recipe. It's easy to make, very inexpensive and I can adjust the garlic and cayenne pepper to suit my taste (I like a lot of both). I have this on hand all the time as a treat for me! It's not as high fat/high calorie as some other hummus recipes. The color is really pretty too.
