  • 2 large red bell peppers
  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven’s broiler. Place the red bell peppers on a baking sheet and broil, turning occasionally, until the skin is charred and blistered. This takes about 10 minutes.
  2. Transfer the peppers to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. This will steam the peppers, making it easier to remove the skin. After a few minutes, peel off the charred skin, remove the seeds, and chop the flesh.
  3. In a food processor, combine the chopped roasted red peppers, chickpeas, tahini, minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  4. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the processor as needed.
  5. Taste and adjust the seasonings if needed, adding more lemon juice, salt, or pepper according to your preference.
  6. Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl, drizzle with a little extra olive oil, and garnish with chopped parsley.
  7. Serve with pita bread, vegetable sticks, or your favorite dippers.
