Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
This easy 1 bowl hummus recipe is a favorite in our household. It is easy to make and only takes a few minutes with a food processor. If you make a large batch like this one you can easily keep it in the fridge for up to a week and have healthy, nutritious and high energy snacks throughout the week. When you get home from work after a long day this easy healthy snack recipe with some cut veggies will hold you over until dinner is ready. What we love about this hummus recipe is that it has, no cholesterol, is low in sodium, is high in dietary fiber, high in manganese, high in vitamin B6 and very high in vitamin C. It is certainly possible to find healthy storebought hummus, according to the Environment Working Group Food Scores, but making it from scratch is really that easy once you get a hang of it. Hummus recipes are very forgiving and can be changed up to suit your tastes and ingredients you have on hand.
