In a few quick steps, you can easily make smooth and creamy hummus in your own home. The flavour combinations with hummus are endless – one could even say it’s a “what’s in my cupboard” type situation! This Middle Eastern favourite is basically blended chickpeas. (In fact, hummus is the Arabic word for chickpeas!)
This is a recipe for a roasted red pepper & sundried tomato hummus that is just bursting with flavour.
2 cups dry chickpeas
2 tsp salt
2 red peppers, rinsed and sliced
8 sundried tomatoes or 2 Tbsp Food Lover’s Sundried tomato pesto
1 garlic clove
1 lemon, juice of
1/3 cup Olive oil
1/2 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
Top with some finely chopped roasted red pepper for garnish.
You can also substitute the 2 cups of dry chickpeas for one tin of chickpeas for a quick easy snack. This also means you can always keep a tin of chickpeas to whip up a home-made hummus for unexpected guests, or movie night with the family.
*Note: When using tinned chickpeas, you can usually reduce the salt added. Try a spoonful and decide for yourself.
