Roasted Red Pepper Hummus



  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tin chickpeas in water, drained
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1-2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp tahini (ground sesame seeds)
  • Water, as needed


  1. Roast the red pepper until skin begins to bubble, remove and leave to cool.
  2. Remove skin from red pepper.
  3. Add chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice and cumin, along with the red pepper to a blender/food processor.
  4. Blitz until the mixture gets going, then blend until desired consistency is reached (add water as you wish).
  5. Split into 4 servings & store in an airtight container in the fridge.

*You can add olive oil in place of water, however this will bring the calorie & fat count up quite a bit.
