I love hummus and don’t usually have tahini just hanging around so I had to come up with something! This is an easy recipe for a red pepper hummus requires no tahini. I’ve looked at several recipes and derived my own. I hope you like it.
2 (16 ounce) cans garbanzo beans, drained
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/8 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
2 T garlic flakes or powder
2 jalapeño or cayenne peppers chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
In a blender or food processor combine garbanzo beans, olive oil, lemon juice, peanut butter, garlic, peppers, salt & cayenne pepper cumin and oregano. Blend on low speed, gradually adding reserved bean liquid, until desired consistency is achieved.
Makes approximately 3 cups
