Red Pepper Hummus

Red Pepper Hummus
So everyone has heard of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus...what about just Red Pepper Hummus? ;)

I bought what I thought was a GIANT can of roasted red peppers only to bring it home and find out that it simply contained diced red! But I decided to stick with my plan and make Roasted Red Pepper Hummus but with unroasted red peppers.

It turned out yummy. Lacking the smokey roasted favour but yummy never-the-less. The colour is gorgeous so if you are having people over last minute and want a fancier better looking hummus to serve but have no roasted peppers, grab a red pepper!
