Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Ever since we watched the movie Planeat, I’ve been on a quest for a good oil-free hummus! I’ve been making these Kale Sandwiches from that movie about every other day, they’re so good! (Terrible picture, sorry! I was too busy eating the hummus to take a good pic!)

Kale Sandwich with Oil-Free Hummus

If you haven’t already read, we are trying to eliminate all added oils from our diet in an effort to “kick it up a notch” in the health department.

I used up about 6 cups of chickpeas trying to create a tasty oil-free hummus recipe, this one was a hit!

Oil-Free Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

* 2 cups dried chickpeas, soaked overnight and cooked in pressure cooker (You could use about 3 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed)

* Juice of 3 lemons, zest of 1 (Hey, I like lemon!)

* 2 roasted red peppers – I used roasted red peppers from a jar (COSTCO) and they were HUGE so maybe use a few more if they are small

* 2 pinches of sumac – great touch but if you don’t have any don’t worry

* 1/2 – 1 tsp salt, to taste

* 1/3-1/2 cup bean cooking liquid (Save from pressure cooking beans) OR use canned bean liquid OR water

* Handful of parsley, to taste

Blend in food processor until smooth and enjoy on sandwiches, pita chips, veggies and whatever else you like!

    I been making my own hummus since we moved here and always just add the bean liquid and no oil and I think it’s excellent as well!

    Where do you find your roasted peppers at costco, I am interested in finding them there and I never knew they carried them.
    Thanks, Cheryl

    • Glass jar with black lid by the olives. It’s a seasonal thing, hope your Costco has them! Trader Joes has them too in a pinch. :-)

    What do you use for bread when a child is used to sandwiches for lunch?

    • I make manna bread or I use brown rice muffins or pitas. I don’t make a lot of sandwiches but I make collard wraps, kids love those!
