Tips & Tricks
Tahini is the key ingredient in all traditional hummus recipes. You can find it at most grocery stores these days, or you can order it here.
Using dried chickpeas. It's easiest to use canned chickpeas for hummus, but you can also choose dried. To make hummus with dried chickpeas, soak them for 8 hours or overnight, and then proceed with the recipe.
Roasted red peppers. You want the jarred roasted red peppers that are packed in water. Alternatively, you can sometimes find freshly roasted red peppers in the deli section of your supermarket.
Food Processor. Hummus is easiest to make in a food processor. But if all you have is a blender, that will work too. You may need to add additional oil or pause to scrape the sides periodically, in order to get the mixture to puree.
You can use this roasted red pepper hummus recipe as a base for all kinds of delicious hummus creations! Try replacing the roasted red peppers with other flavorful ingredients like kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, or roasted garlic cloves.
