I don't think I'll ever get sick of creating new hummus recipes. I probably have around a dozen on the blog with several more waiting to be posted.
This Spicy Red Pepper Hummus was inspired by some store-bought hummus I was gifted with. I had just broken my ankle, so it was a welcome surprise.
I liked it so much that I thought I would try and recreate it. Mine didn't come out quite as spicy as the store-bought version, which might actually be better for all of you.
If you haven't started making your own hummus yet, I highly recommend it. This red pepper hummus with spices takes only a few minutes to make and it is cheaper than store-bought. Those little tubs just aren't worth it.
Even if you don't like this roasted red pepper hummus, which I doubt will be the case, don't give up on making your own hummus. Everyone likes different ratios of the base ingredients, which are garbanzo beans, tahini, garlic, and lemon juice.
If this is your first time making hummus, you may want to start with less lemon juice, tahini, and garlic, and taste as you go.
- Garbanzo beans: Adds the texture, flavor, and creaminess hummus is known for.
- Tahini: Also a traditional hummus ingredient. Adds a nutty sesame flavor.
- Roasted red pepper: Adds a sweet charred flavor.
- Cayenne pepper and paprika: Add spice and flavor.
- Lemon juice: Adds a bright tart flavor.
- Garlic: Adds a pungent flavor.
- Water: To thin it out.
- Olive oil: Adds creaminess.
- Salt: Enhances the other flavors.
