Lucky for me, Alyssa’s subscription to Cooking Light comes to the house and I get to read it first. This reader recipe caught my eye. It’s very easy, if you have a food processor, has no oil and has a nice red pepper flavor. Traditional hummus is served with olive oil drizzled on top. You could serve it with olive oil, but I didn’t and it was delicious. All credit should go to Mary Pellum. Serve with pita or veggies.

1/3 cup tahini – I bought mine fresh at at Trader Joes
1/4 c. water
1/4 cup roasted red pepper, rinsed and drained if from a jar
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 minced garlic clove
1 15 1/2 ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

Put all ingredients into a food processor. Mix until smooth. Yields 2 cups.
