Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

One of the things that Matt and I enjoy doing (especially before kids), is go snowshoeing, especially up in the white mountains.  We haven’t been able to go in about three years.  But when I saw that our friends Al and Andrea (check out her website!) own snowshoes, we jumped at the opportunity to get together with them and go locally.


We had a great time!  It was nice to finally get outside!  I was sore and got some nasty blisters from my boots, but it was worth it!  After snowshoeing, we went out for lunch at one of our favorite local restaurants, The Grill Next Door.  For some reason, the red pepper hummus on the menu was calling my name.  I had never had this type of hummus before but knew I needed to try it!  Oh my god it was soo good!  So what did I do the next day?  Try to make it of course!

Any recipe where you can throw all the ingredients into the food processor at once is a great recipe.  And that is why you should make your own hummus!  I used this recipe from the blog Six Sisters’ Stuff.

I’ve made this twice already.
