Homemade hummus is the best! It is cheaper, healthier and so quick to make and roasted red pepper hummus is my favourite flavour because of the smoky sweetness that it has to it.
Let’s talk snacking! I am a big snacker and will usually have 2-3 snacks a day. Mostly they are things like fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds, but I am really in to hummus at the moment, so that has been a daily snack. It is not the lowest calorie snack out there, because of the beans, olive oil and tahini, but they are very healthy calories and healthy fats. Try not to just focus on calories, but what is actually in your food too. I count chemicals rather than just calories now.

If you don’t feel like roasting your own peppers, as they can take some time, pick yourself up a jar of Peppadew Roasted Red Peppers. I posted a recipe yesterday for Roasted Red Pepper Spaghetti, and introduced you to Peppadew products. We always have a jar of these roasted red peppers in our fridge so we can whip up a batch of this hummus when a snack craving hits.
This hummus is ready in just a few minutes, thanks to using Peppadew roasted red peppers, so it’s also the perfect thing to put together when you have unexpected guests over Christmas. You know, those people that pop round to drop some presents or a card off and they just don’t seem to leave. Although, if you serve up this hummus, they will never want to leave.
Peppadew Mild and Hot available at Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons, Co-op, Ocado, Wholefoods and Booths.
Cheese Stuffed available at Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Wholefoods and Booths.
Roasted Red Peppers available at Co-op and Waitrose.
Of course you can also soak your own dried chick peas, rather than using canned, but that will take much longer and this recipe is all about being quick and simple. It will be cheaper that way, but you will need to start making this many hours before you plan on eating it and I d0n’t know about you, but when a hummus craving hits, I want it there and then, I don’t want to wait until the next day for it.
Bring on the hummus!
