Healthy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus


* Optional Substitution Note

Ingredients for about 2 cups:

  • 1.5 can (22.5oz) chickpeas (drained)
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 5 tablespoon almond butter
  • 5 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • red pepper flakes (garnish)



Step 1

Set oven to broil.

Step 2

Place red bell peppers on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 15 minutes. Turn the bell peppers over after 7 minutes so they are roasted on the other side.

Step 3

Allow the bell pepper to cool down slightly. Chop the stem off the bell pepper and peel/remove the skin.

Step 4

In a Vitamix 5200 blender or high-powered blender, toss in the above ingredients. Blend on hi-speed until you are left with a creamy, smooth consistency. Season with sea salt & pepper to taste.

Step 5

Store the hummus in an airtight container and garnish with red pepper flakes. Place in the refrigerator to chill and thicken.
