Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

  • Author: Carlos Leo
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 -3/4 cups 1x


Best Hummus Ever!! This recipe was adapted from the very best, my mentor Ina Garten. However, throughout the years, I have made several changes to the original hummus recipe. This time I made a couple of changes with the garnishes and I added the Roasted Red Pepper. The sweet pepper gives another dimension of flavor and a crunchy nutty taste from the pine nuts. This dish is a hit when I have parties with friends and family. They always ask me to give them this recipe.


Units Scale

  • 1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
  • 6 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons). I always add more if I want more acidity.
  • 2 Tablespoons water or liquid from the chickpeas
  • 2 Tablespoons Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil Click to purchase from our online shop
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped

Optional as a garnish:

It's very important to leave the hummus overnight to mix and concentrate the flavors.
