The weird thing is, I used to hate hummus! All I can say is that my taste buds must have grown up and realised what they were missing out on!


Roasting the red peppers gives them a subtle smoky flavour. And, throwing them into the mix is a great way to liven up a simple bowl of hummus. You can ask Bam Bam, who would happily polish off an entire batch of this (and end up breathing garlic on me for the rest of the day!) if I let him!

It really shouldn’t have taken me so long….
