This roasted red pepper and tahini hummus recipe is made with fresh red pepper, garlic, chickpeas, lemon, and tahini. It's what I call luxury hummus.


  • 2 cups of dried chickpeas (6 cups cooked or canned chickpeas)
  • 6 tbsp of tahini
  • 3 red bell peppers
  • 2 lemons
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp of cumin
  • pinch of ground paprika (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (if using dry chickpeas)
  • Salt to taste


  1. Soak chickpeas for at least 3 hours for baking powder.
  2. Cook chickpeas on the stovetop for about 1 hour to 1.5 hours or until tender.
  3. Cut the red bell pepper and lay the skin up on a baking sheet. Roast at 425 ℉ (218 ℃) for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the skin is slightly charred.
  4. Remove the red bell pepper skin (or keep the skin intact for a more smoky flavor) and chop the peppers roughly.
  5. Mash garlic, squeeze the lemons, and measure out the cumin and tahini.
  6. Add the drained chickpeas to the food processor along with the smashed garlic, lemon juice, ground cumin, tahini, and salt.
  7. Blend the hummus on high until smooth.
  8. Serve with olive oil and some ground paprika on top.
