Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

2 cloves chopped garlic*
1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
3 Tbsp Tahini (sesame paste)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup chopped Roasted Red Peppers

With food processor turned on, drop garlic cloves in and chop.  Drain garbanzo beans and set liquid aside.  Add beans, tahini, lemon juice, and red peppers to food processor and mix together.  Add liquid from garbanzo beans as needed and mix in food processor until texture is smooth.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with pita bread or pita chips.  It also makes a great spread for sandwiches!

*If you plan to store it for more than 1 day, you might want to go a little lighter with the garlic.  The garlic flavor tends to get stronger over time.
