Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I’m a Fan!

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus = My Happy Place

I think Hummus is ALL THAT and much more. I mean honestly, I must be a Hummus snob some how {I’m so laughing right now}.

In other words, I’m just plain picky with the food that passes my lips. I don’t like to eat for the sake of just eating – give me flavor people! Food that is worth it in every way and not “cardboardy” {no, not a real word}, fried in sludge, empty calorie kind of food, blahhhh.

Being able to control the flavor is, I suppose, one of the reasons I enjoy cooking and experimenting with recipes so much. Finding combinations that really do justice to each other – puts a smile on my face.

As with this Hummus recipe, no it’s not a new combination of flavors by any means, but it still puts that smerky smile on my face!

I use to enjoy eating a bag of chips until the bottom of the bag could be clearly seen … then I decided THAT was a bad idea {you think?!?!} and changed my eating habits. This is one of those recipes I leaned on when I really needed/wanted an extra boost of flavor and to satisfy my munchy cravings and thus my Happy Place. 😀
