Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I love using my food processor, I even go out of my way to find recipes that require a food processor so I can get it out and use it. This hummus was one of many dishes my mom, our friends Trish and Jan, and I prepared for my birthday party a few weeks ago. I didn't really get 'sweet' from it, but it was good nonetheless.

1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
1 (4 ounce) jar roasted red peppers
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (I left out because I didn't have any)

Using a food processor, puree all the ingredients until smooth.
We served with pita chips and a stick salad (a.k.a. celery and carrots).

  1. I previously didn't like red peppers but I'm slowly reintroducing myself to them.... and this looks wonderful!
