Although I love plain lemony hummus, there are many ways to spice it up! One of my favorite is by mixing in roasted red peppers. The first time I roasted the peppers, I was really careful not to burn it. Turns out, it actually tastes better if you completely blacken it! You can buy ready-made roasted peppers from the store, but I prefer roasting them at home. It’s fun and I find that it tastes fresher.
Plain hummus (see previous blog post) 1 red bell pepper
1. Broil the red bell pepper until the skin is burned on all sides (rotate the pepper as each side blackens).
3. Gently peel off the blackened skin and discard. Remove the seeds from the inside and slice the remaining part into 1/2 inch pieces.
4. Mix the roasted red pepper pieces into the plain hummus.
