Easy Roasted Garlic and Red Pepper Hummus

There are some things that I cook that I just cannot top what I can buy at the store or restaurant. It is always my goal when we go out to eat to look at the menu and think, “what can’t I make at home for myself?” Until recently, hummus had always been one of those food items. It seemed a bit too exotic for me to even attempt to make. ┬áIt took a few attempts, but I must say that this recipe for roasted garlic and red pepper hummus is easy and tastes better than what I can buy at the grocery store.

The slightly painful part of experimenting with making hummus is buying tahini. The jar was almost ten dollars and you only need a small amount for each batch of hummus. I will make an effort to make this regularly to use this ingredient. As quickly as this bowl disappeared, I don’t think that will be much of an problem!

Part of what gives this hummus so much flavor is the roasted garlic. If you are not a garlic fan then you probably should cut back on the amount of garlic you add. Roasting the garlic does mellow the flavor and makes it less bitter. Other than the tahini, the other ingredients were already in my kitchen.

My next culinary goal is to master making either pita bread or naan. Both breads make for an amazing way to eat this delicious hummus. I’m not going to lie, I could eat nothing but the bread and be perfectly happy!

It really is rewarding when you can make something and it rivals what you can buy from the store. Hummus is certainly one of those things that is so much more flavorful, fresh and delicious when you make it at home.
