Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

We @ AGC are cooking Turkish Cuisine this month. I decided to make this simple Hummus for that. I used it as a spread for sandwich.


Cooked Chick peas 1 cup (about 1/2 cup dried)
Red Pepper 1
Chilli Powder 1/2 tsp
Cumin Powder 1/2 tsp
Lemon Juice 1/8 cup
Cilantro/Coriander handful
Garlic 2 pods
Salt to taste
Tahini (Sesame paste) 1/4 cup

Method of Preparation

1. If you are using dried chick peas, soak overnight and pressure cook. Drain and add to the mixie.

2. Add the chilli powder, cumin powder, lime juice, coriander leaves and garlic. Add Tahini as well if using. I did not use it, and it did not change the taste much. Not having Tahini should not prevent you from enjoying this awesome dish.

3. Give the mixie a run till it is all mixed and the chickpeas and garlic are ground.

4. Roast the red pepper on the stove top. Just show it over the flame and keep rotating it till all the sides are blackened

5. Chop the pepper removing the stem and the seeds.

6. Add to the mixie and run again. This time it will be smoother as the red pepper will provide juice to get the mixture going.

7. Refrigerate till you need to serve

Use it as a dip for carrots/celery/chips or as a spread over bread or use in sandwiches.

To make this sandwich, i just cooked some mushrooms in the microwave and the layered it on a bread with a spread of the hummus. Just hummus on the bread also tasted awesome.
