Roasted pepper Hummus !!

To make hummus you don't need too much time, and the taste is gorgeous...even you don't have to use dried chickpeas and soaking and all that..just use shop bought tin of chick peas and that would be fine...great as a dip but you can use many ways..this time I made it with Roasted red peppers, and also added Harrisa paste for bit of spiciness..I hadn't much time so I used peppers straight from the jar..it turned out really well !!

you can see jalapeno hummus recipe here.

You will need :-
2/3 cups garbanzos (Chickpeas)(drained; reserve 1/4 cup liquid) Tin
1/4 cup tahini (sesame seed paste, made of ground sesame seeds, used jar one)
juice of 1 lemon
1-2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2- cup Red Roasted peppers(used jar one)
1-2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive oil
1 tsp Harrisa Paste
1/2 teaspoon salt

Method:-

Place the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth, adding reserved liquid if necessary. Eat with whole wheat pita breads and/or raw vegetables or use in any other recipe which I used for my panini..

Enjoy!!
