Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I’ve never been much of a hummus fan but I decided to give this a go so I’ve got something a bit different for lunch and now it’s got me thinking about summer picnics down the beach. Shop bought hummus can be quite high in fat so this is a healthier alternative. It also doesn’t take too long to make, as long as you have a food processor of course!


  • A 400g can of chickpeas
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 tsp of paprika
  • Small sprinkle of chilli flakes
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


De-seed and slice the red pepper then place it in a baking tray and spray with a bit of Frylight (I used the garlic one) then pop in the oven on 180° for 10-15 minutes until the pepper has softened. Meanwhile, rinse and drain the tinned chickpeas then add them to your food processor. Add the garlic and seasonings then the red pepper once it’s cooked. Blitz until it becomes a smooth(ish) paste then serve and enjoy with a variety of vegetable sticks.
