Roasted Bell Pepper & Rosemary Hummus


The hand-me-down food processor I inherited recently is opening up new worlds for me in the kitchen.  Last night I had a housewarming party to attend whose hostess I knew to be gluten free.  Rather than buying a bottle of liquor I took the time to make hummus from scratch.  It gave me an opportunity to use the fresh herbs from my garden and try something new.  I've been addicted lately to a soybean hummus at Costco; if I'd only known how easy it is to make it myself.  I love the wide range of flavors that one can come up with by creating your own hummus from scratch.  The soybean hummus will be next on my list of experiments.  I have a feeling I'll be making hummus more often than buying in the future!

Roasted Bell Pepper and Rosemary Hummus

1 tub (8 oz.) Trader Joe's Tahini Dip
2 Tbsp Fresh Rosemary
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1/3 c Roasted Red Bell Pepper (I used Trader Joe's jarred version:  bonus points if you roast your own)
1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 can organic Garbanzo Beans

Rinse the beans and remove their hulls.  Throw all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until smooth.  Adjust seasonings to taste, adding more lemon juice or a bit of salt if needed.  Serve with veggies, cheese crisps, or seeded bread.
