Roasted Garlic & Red Pepper Hummus

This flavour-packed hummus is delicious on its own, but it's also great on sandwiches or wraps. The caramelized bell pepper and garlic are muted in their intensity, and add a lovely sweetness to this hummus.

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (250°C).
  2. Add the bell pepper and garlic to a parchment-lined baking tray. Toss with oil, and bake in the middle rack of the oven until the garlic peel is golden, and the bell pepper is lightly charred, about 25 minutes. Stop to flip the bell peppers once halfway.
  3. When the bell peppers have cooled enough to handle, remove any charred bits from the bell peppers, if desired. Remove the peel from the garlic cloves.
  4. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend on high until well combined, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed, until creamy. The longer you blend, the creamier the hummus becomes.
  5. If you'd like the hummus even creamier, add more olive oil and/or tahini. If you'd like the hummus to be zestier, add more lemon juice.
  6. Plate, garnish, and serve!


  • Make-ahead this hummus to enjoy in sandwiches or wraps throughout the week!

This is honestly the best hummus I've ever made! It has the perfect, balanced flavour and texture, makes a big batch, and is so easy to make! Thank you so much for the recipe!

An incredible compliment, Caitlin! So happy you're enjoying the hummus :)

Love this recipe! Its also quite quick, if your local store has roasted bell peppers in a jar. My recommendation though - don't be afraid to adjust seasoning to your taste buds. I typically add more lemon juice and add more salt in the form of soy sauce. After discovering this recipe I have stopped buying ready-made hummus - this is way more delicious and cheaper!

Aw so glad you're enjoying it, Agate - and absolutely! The beauty in hummus is adjusting the spice and zest to your liking 🍋😊
