red peppered hummus

I tried the "Red Goddess Hummus" at Trader Joe's and re-created it at home with some tweaks. Here are the recipe & my comments.

1 jar Goddess Dressing (I used some tahini and just dumped it in--about 4 heaping tablespoons I guess)
2 cans chickpeas, drained (I used one can, but this is a good way to make a bigger amount)
1 jar roasted red peppers, drained
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
chopped garlic to taste
sprinkle of salt and pepper (my addition)

Add all ingredients but chickpeas to blender. Blend! Add chickpeas. Blend more to desired consistency. Eat with desired accompaniment, such as crudités, pita bread, tortilla chips, etc.

I can't imagine making 2 cans of chickpeas. The amount of hummus from just one can is enormous unless you're having a party.

But maybe I'll make a batch this week. I'm kinda on a chickpea kick.

Exactly my thought!

The next thing I'm going to try is roasted chickpeas.
