Hummus: Roasted Pepper & Roasted Eggplant & Garlic

Hummus is an absolute staple in my refrigerator.  It is one of my favorite snacks, salad toppers and has become a must have spread when making wraps.  Here are a couple of my favorite recipes;

Roasted Pepper Hummus

Ingredients

15 oz can of chick peas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
1 head roasted garlic
2 roasted bell peppers - red, yellow or orange
1 tbsp tahini paste
1 tbsp olive oil
juice of half a lemon
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8-1/4 tsp salt

To roasted the garlic and bell pepper; preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Cut about 1/4 inch off the top of the garlic head, put into a baking dish with the bell peppers, drizzle with olive oil, cover with foil and roast until tender - about 45 minutes to an hour. 

*Instead of adding more oil when making the hummus I used the juices and any olive oil left in the pan from roasting the garlic and bell peppers.

In a food processor; combine all of the ingredients to your desired consistency, mixing to ensure all of the ingredients are evenly distributed and incorporated.
