Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Hummus originated from the Middle East. Several variations exist according to region. Since it can be prepared many different ways, the combination of ingredients are endless. Using freshly cooked beans over canned typically yields a creamier texture and if you have the time I’d recommend it!
