Brighten up traditional hummus with a sweet purée of roasted red or orange bell peppers (try our Roasted Bell Peppers).
This isn't a traditional hummus, but it serves the same delicious purpose; it's a great dip for pita chips or crudités, and it's a tasty sandwich spread, too.
|2 large||red Earthbound Farm Organic Bell Peppers (roasted)|
|1/2 cup||walnuts (toasted)|
|1/2 cup||garbanzo beans (rinsed and drained)|
|2 tablespoons||olive oil (if your peppers have been stored in oil, use that)|
|2 tablespoons||fresh lemon juice|
|1 teaspoon||ground cumin|
|1 clove||Earthbound Farm Organic Garlic (large clove, peeled)|
|Salt and cayenne pepper (to taste)|
Peel the roasted peppers and discard the skins, stems and seeds. Place the peppers, walnuts, garbanzo beans, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin and garlic in a food processor and purée the mixture. Season to taste with salt and cayenne pepper.
Serve at room temperature or refrigerate, covered, for up to 5 days.
