Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

The weather is getting warmer and we are officially in summer! I have not felt like turning on a stove in days. My favorite foods when the weather gets hot are smoothies, salads, nourish bowls, and sandwiches. Hummus can be a wonderful, protein packed accompaniment to salads, bowls and sandwiches. It is such a versatile dip with so many flavor combinations.

Chickpeas are packed with whole plant protein and emerging research suggests that chickpeas and hummus may play a beneficial role in weight management and glucose and insulin regulation, as well as have a positive impact on some markers of cardiovascular disease (CVD), cancer, and gut health. Raw or cooked chickpeas and hummus also contain dietary bioactives such as phytic acid, sterols, tannins, carotenoids, and other polyphenols such as isoflavones, whose benefits may extend beyond basic nutrition requirements of humans.

Hummus, because of its chickpea content, is a source not only of protein, but also dietary fiber, resistant starch, polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, especially folate, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

There are only good things from chickpeas and hummus! Enjoy this recipe and feel free to substitute or add other flavors to make different combinations.

If you have been looking for a creamy, oil free, salt free, spicy delicious hummus recipe, then this is the one for you! This hummus recipe comes together in just a few minutes. You can use store bought roasted red peppers or make you own.

  6. 2 Tbs Tahini paste
  7. 1 Tbs balsamic vinegar
  8. 1 tsp papirka powder
