If you love hummus as much as we do, then you will adore this Roasted Red Pepper Hummus version! It has all the goodness of the classic, but it has an added smoky, sweet, and zesty kick that is absolutely addicting! It is versatile, budget-friendly, and is done in just 25 minutes!
Add all of the ingredients to the bowl of a food processor- wiz on high for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides and continue to pulse slowly adding the reserved chickpea water. Once you have a texture you like, taste, and add salt and pepper to your liking.
Allow to sit overnight in the refrigerator for the best result, stored in an airtight container.
If you want your hummus to be thinner, add more chickpea water slowly. Make sure not to pour all of it into the mixture, or you might end up with it being too thin.
You can make adjustments to the measurement as you please. Add more jalapenos, or you can even add chili powder to make it spicier. If you like it with more zest, add more lemon juice to the mix.
If you are using dried chickpeas, make sure to soak them overnight before using them. Don’t throw away the soaking water, as you will use it later in this recipe. If you do not have time for soaking, you can quickly boil them in a pot until they soften.
For super smooth hummus, remove the thin chickpea skin and peel the roasted bell peppers before blending. They should be soft enough to add if you do not have time to remove them, but the hummus will not be as smooth.
