Today we are talking about hummus…oh yes…I mean, who doesn´t love hummus? It´s not only tasty but also so versatile! You can use it as a spread, as a dip, as pasta sauce, as a dressing…wait a second… as pasta sauce? … as a dressing? Yes! As Dreena Burton says, “hummus should be a food group”, and I could not agree more.

This time I decided to play around with different ingredients and today I´m sharing with you this amazing roasted red bell pepper hummus. Since this is a low-fat hummus, we are skipping the oil and the tahini. BUT, this is still super creamy, smooth, packed with flavor and so filling and the roasted red bell peppers add a nice smoky sweetness to it. It tastes delicious spread on toasted dark bread or dipped with carrots. I usually make a double batch because it just disappears in no-time!
