Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Jump to Recipe


Hummus. An essential vegan staple, no matter the flavor – including roasted red pepper hummus. There are a trillion recipes out there for hummus (okay not really – at that I wrote this Google returns 12,200,000 in their search engine results).

And here is another roasted red pepper hummus recipe for them to index! This one contains oil – I have yet to give that up 100% but do live pretty oil free most days!  If you want to avoid oil, drain your chickpeas and use the chickpea juices, called aquafaba for the oil (it does turn out really good in our Oil Free Hummus if you want to try it!)

But in this recipe, I use a little oil! I didn’t go heavy on the red peppers here – just enough to give it a slight sweet red pepper taste and a slight red color.
Great to eat by the spoonful, top your salads with or combine in your favorite buddha bowl.
Add some creamy roasted red pepper to your salad bowls and more! 

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Recipe by SarahCourse: Snacks

Add some creamy roasted red pepper to your salad bowls and more! 


  • 1 – 15 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

  • 3-4 mini red peppers

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 3 Tblsp lemon juice

  • 2 Tblsp tahini

  • ⅓ cup olive oil


  • Roast your red peppers. Preheat oven to 500 degrees and line a pan with foil. Place whole pepper on foil and roasted for 20 min, turning once. Remove from oven when outer skin of pepper looks charred. Immediately wrap foil like a tent around peppers. Let them steam for 20 minutes. Remove the stem from each pepper and cut them in quarters. Remove the peels and seeds. Discard the stems, peels, and seeds.

  • Drain chickpeas (reserve ½ the can juices if you are avoiding oil to use as oil substitute).
  • Rinse well. Put chickpeas in blender in food processor or blender.Put all remaining ingredients in food processor or blender (including your skinned and cooled down roasted peppers). I always put the oil last.
  • Blend! You will need to stop and stir a few times during blending.
  • Eat or Refrigerate!
