Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Recipe

I love hummus (obvs) but in all the years on the planet 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!


Roasted Red Pepper Hummus



  • 3 large red peppers, de-seeded and chopped
  • 3 tsp mild olive oil
  • 1 red and 1 white onion, chopped
  • handful chopped coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 x 400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 garlic clove, sliced
  • ½ unwaxed lemon, juice and zest finely grate
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Preheat the grill. Chop the peppers and place on tray. Drizzle with olive oil.  Grill for 15 minutes until the skins are black. Leave the cool.

When cold enough peel the skins. Fry the onions.

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.
