- 2 large red bell peppers, roasted and peeled
- 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons water
- Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
- Begin by roasting the red bell peppers. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Place the whole peppers on a baking sheet and roast for about 25-30 minutes, turning them occasionally, until the skin is charred and blistered.
- Transfer the roasted peppers to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. This helps loosen the skin, making it easier to peel. Once cooled, peel the skin, remove the seeds, and roughly chop the flesh.
- In a food processor, combine the roasted red peppers, chickpeas, minced garlic, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth and creamy, adding water as needed to achieve your desired consistency.
- Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
- Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl, drizzle with olive oil, and garnish with chopped parsley.
- Serve with an array of fresh vegetables, pita bread, or your favorite dipping companions.
