Recipe By: Chary Produce




1 can garbanzo beans

1/3 cup tahini

1/3 cup lemon juice

½ cup roasted red peppers

¼ tsp. dry basil or a few fresh basil leaves

Garlic, to taste

Salt & pepper




To make the roasted red peppers:  Red bell peppers work best because their walls are the thickest.  Wash the peppers and put the entire wet pepper on its side on a hot grill.  As the skin blackens & bubbles, turn them.  When the whole pepper is black (15-20 minutes), remove from the grill.  Peel the blackened skin while the pepper is warm.  Remove stem & core and rinse.

To make the hummus, put all of the items into a food process and mix until smooth.  Chill.  Serve with baked pita triangles.
