Mediterranean cooking at its finest. Inspired by a Spanish tapa, red pepper hummus is a delicious addition to any meal or party.
For the Hummus:
1/3 cup chopped roasted red peppers
1, 15 ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon tahini
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup pomegranate arils
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Fresh basil leaves (optional)
In a food processor, add all of the ingredients for the hummus and blend until smooth
Garnish with pomegranate seeds, olive oil, and sea salt (basil is optional)
Cut fresh pita into wedges and serve with hummus
If your hummus is too thick for your liking, you can add 1 tablespoon of water to thin it out.
