The ingredients are simple and in-expensive, except for the Tahini paste. Tahini paste is ground up sesame seeds and what gives hummus its creamy texture. Most grocery stores now carry itand I have found it on sale at Giant for $7.99 (which is reasonable compared to other brands). It will last you a long time and doesn’t expire for a while. You can omit Tahini if you are in a pinch, but I don’t recommend it.
To make this roasted red pepper hummus you can use any old blender. For a while I used my old 2 speed blender and now I use my Nutri-bullet. I highly recommend the Nutri-bullet to anyone interested!
Price – If you eat a lot of hummus, making it yourself is the cheaper option. If you rarely eat it, this recipe may not be for you. All the ingredients are inexpensive, except the Tahini, costing upward of $7 a bottle, without it, the hummus really isn’t the same, but you can omit if you have to.
Drain garbanzo beans. Drain red peppers. Add all ingredients to blender and turn on high until mixed. Add more salt to taste.
