Tasty, Healthy Snack You Can Make at Home!

Making hummus at home is not difficult. I’ve been making Roasted Garlic Hummus for a while. I decided it was time for a new hummus – Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus!

A white bowl filled with a lightly colored red hummus.

The inspiration for this recipe comes from my favorite store bought hummus. I decided to see if I could replicate it at home. I think I’ve nailed it!

A glass filled with freshly cut carrots, celery and green onions next to a bowl of hummus.

Another favorite hummus is this beet hummus. Hummus is perfect with fresh cut veggies, pita chips or baked tortilla chips.
