I love hummus (obvs) but in all the years on the planet (37) and the fact I’m originally Greek Cypriot, I’ve yet to make or taste roasted red pepper hummus. I know. Shock, horror.

All that changed on the weekend when I gave it a whirl-and loved the results. So much so, I’m going to be making this regularly. I hope you love it as much as the whole family does!

  • 2 garlic clove, sliced
  • ½ unwaxed lemon, juice and zest finely grate

how to make red pepper hummus

Add the coriander and cumin. In a mixer (I use Magimix gifted to us) add onion, the flesh, chickpeas, garlic, lemon and salt and pepper. Blend until it’s smooth and add a little water if you feel the mixture is too thick.
