Hey guys, welcome back to Dede’s Mediterranean Kitchen. Today, I'm going to be making roasted red pepper hummus. Now, this is part of my new series of videos called Mediterranean-Americana. It’s a fusion of Mediterranean food with American food and a little kick.
Now, what you’re going to need to start off, to make a roasted bill pepper hummus is a can of garbanzo beans. Anything from a 16 to ounce will work with this recipe. You’re going to need a half cup of lemon juice, a quarter cup of yogurt, two to three cloves of minced garlic, a little bit of cayenne pepper for the kick and one roasted red pepper. I'm going to talk to you more about roasting a red pepper. You’re also going to need a little bit of olive oil and some parsley and black olives for garnish.
Now, you can buy a roasted red pepper in a can or in a jar or at the grocery store or you can roast it at home fresh. I like to roast my red peppers at home. All you need is red pepper, put it under the broiler in the oven, just make sure you stand by and you turn it so that it doesn’t overly roast. I have one here, I put it in a plate or you can put it in a plastic bag and then cover it so that it’s easier to pill off the chard part just like that. It’s going to shrivel off a little it but it makes it really easy. Look at that. It’s so easy to peel of the skin. Just like that, so peel off your red pepper.
Now, roasted red pepper hummus can be served. The same as hummus, it could be served with a lot of, you know, meat dishes, chicken dishes with pita chips, with toasted pita, with plain pita, you can even serve it with tortilla chips. I have seen that as well. It’s really, really good dish. Has a lot of flavor but hummus naturally has a lot of flavor. So I'm sure you guys are going to really like this dish.
And just make sure you do remove all of the seeds. You don’t want these seeds in your hummus. So just like that. You want to place it in your food processor. You are going to need a food processor for this and you have a little rinse. Next, what we’re going to do is we’re going to add the can of garbanzo beans or chick peas, it’s the same thing. We’re going to add our minced garlic, our yogurt.
Now, I have in my other home recipe, I do have that you add a couple of tablespoons of water, because the roasted red pepper adds moisture to the hummus. You’re not going to need to add any additional water to dish. Add our lemon juice, we’re going to add a half teaspoon of salt. We’ll put a cayenne pepper. If you don’t like cayenne pepper, you don’t like anything spicy, you don’t have to add any. I just like to add some, it gives it a little bit of a kick, a little bit more flavor. We’re going to turn this on and blend it before we add the tahini. I like it because it helps smooth out the texture before you add the tahini. Because when you do add the tahini, the texture becomes much more thick. I like it this way, so try it.
Okay, so I blended it and it’s a nice orange-red color. I'm going to add about a half cup of tahini. Now, you can buy this on my website, if you can’t find it at your local grocery store. I'm also going to add about a table spoon of olive oil, just for the flavor and then give it another… Okay, so let’s give it a little bit of a stir. And you can check the consistency now. If you see that it’s too wet, you can add some more tahini, and tahini is a thickener. So it will help thicken it. I'm going to add just tablespoon or two more and then give another pulse.
Okay, our mixture is done blending. I'm going to clear out the space here and let me show you how to serve it. Here is out pita breed. We have some parsley for garnish and some olives. I like the black olives, you can even use green olives. It’s a nice contrast for the color of the hummus. So you’re going to pour into dish and then spread it out. Spread out just like that. I would like to add some parsley first. I like the green, it’s a nice contrast, black is a nice contrast. You want your dish to be colorful and presentable because people like to eat things that are pretty. So I mean, you can just put it in a dish and serve it like that, but your guess will be so much impress if you put a little bit more effort and decorate the dish.
See. Just like that. Put a little bit of olive oil, and there you go, that’s it. It’s easy, this was your red pepper hummus, it’s a nice variety to the hummus.

I'm going to start eating it with the pita bread. I will see you again.
