I think by now hummus is so mainstream that everyone knows how delicious and healthy it can be. That said, not all hummus is created equal. I have had some unbelievable hummus and I have also had some stuff labeled hummus that should be embarrassed by itself.
For a while I was content to eat the hummus that I would buy at Whole Foods, which is actually quite good. Then one day our friend (and occasional food critic on this blog) Dianna was saying how she makes her own hummus all the time because it is so easy and so much better than anything she could buy at the grocery store. She was so right and I so needed to make my own. I went online in search of an authentic hummus recipes and melded a few into one.
I made this roasted red pepper hummus because I had extra peppers in the fridge. I have made this hummus twice now, and it is very tasty. It is definitely not the best hummus I have ever had, but it is pretty damn good. If you don’t like roasted red peppers, just remove them from the recipe and make plain hummus. I will continue to make hummus and tweak recipes until I can rival the hummus of Pita Plus, which is the best hummus I have had in these parts. Those Israeli’s know how to make a mean hummus and lafa bread.

We eat this with our homemade pita bread, baked pita chips, pretzels, and various vegetables. You could even put this on a sandwich in place of mayo. Isn’t hummus great?!
