I really like hummus, but it’s really hard for me to pay $4+ for a small container of it! I have had homemade hummus before and it’s “ok,” but not as good as some I’ve bought.
I created this Red Pepper Hummus recipe.
It’s cheaper than store-bought hummus, and just as delicious!
So what did I put in it?
My kitchen yesterday – hummus in the blender, chicken cooking, and homemade matzah cooling on the stove.
Red Pepper Hummus
1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, drained (can use the equivalent amount of prepared dried beans)
1/2 cup sour cream
Salt to taste (it takes quite a bit for my taste!)
2 teaspoons canola or grape seed oil
1/3 red bell pepper, chopped
water to reach desired consistency – probably several tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
Add everything to blender except water. Add water, one tablespoon at a time, to aid mixing and to reach desired consistency. Mix on medium-high speed until smooth.
I, personally, like hummus on just about any anything – white bread, pretzels, veggies, you name it! This week, though, I decided to make Homemade Matzah with the recipe from my sister Tammy’s website. It was excellent with hummus!
As a side note, this is where I put my recipes while I cook: on the side of the fridge.
If I print a recipe and like it I paste it into a notebook full of recipes from magazines and online, which is my homemade “cookbook.”
