Roasted red pepper hummus

The weather today looked like the weather on the women’s cycling at the Olypmics this morning. So it seemed like the best day to run errands and get some work done to free up the schedule for the good weather to come back. But, alas things were less than productive. Time to at least give the hummus some cheering me up: roasted red pepper hummus. The basic hummus recipe with an added dash of tabasco and 4 TB of the Trader Joe’s roasted red pepper spread. Delicious!

Hummus (ca 2 cups)

  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas, liquid reserved 
  • 1/2 tsp fleur de sel (or kosher salt), or to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup tahini  (sesame paste)
  • 2 Tbsp reserved chickpea liquid (or water) or as much as needed to achieve desired texture
  • about 1 ts of Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • 4 TB roasted red pepper spread
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
Place all ingredients into a food processor (except the salt) and process until the hummus is coarsely pureed. Scoop into a bowl and drizzle with a good quality olive oil.
