In general, my family is not very fond of beans. We like them in chili and a few Mexican dishes, but that’s about it. However, gluten-free son and I enjoy eating hummus. Especially with tortilla chips (I buy organic, non-gmo chips).
I have seen recipes for hummus and knew it was easy to make, but I kept putting off doing it. Then, when I made my first batch, it was garlic hummus, and I used way too much garlic. And too much tahini. I discovered that I don’t like a lot of tahini.
If you’re wondering, tahini is sesame seed butter. It comes in a jar, like peanut butter, or sometimes in a can. Most hummus includes some tahini, but you can omit it. I didn’t use very much in this recipe.
While we like garlic hummus, roasted red pepper is really our favorite, and that’s what I have now decided is incredibly easy to make and even easier to enjoy eating.
If you like hummus but haven’t yet tried making your own, you really should give it a try.
