Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I woke up yesterday morning with a sugar hangover. After baking cupcakes and taste-testing frosting recipes the past weekend, I was craving two things yesterday– fresh vegetables and water.

One of my favorite snacks is hummus and fresh veggies. It is light, refreshing, and filling. Although I do not discriminate against store-bought hummus, I love homemade hummus because I know exactly what is going into it, it is easy to make, and I can customize it to whatever I want at the moment!

Yesterday, I wanted Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. I have made lots of different types of hummus before, but I think Roasted Red Pepper Hummus might be the most flavorful to date… Plus look at that red-orange color! It is creamy, fresh, and slightly spicy.

The perfect dish when you need a healthy and tasty change of pace.
