Homemade Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Recipe

How to make roasted red pepper hummus
*cut up cauliflower, red pepper into med chunks and place on a baking tray with garlic cloves then drizzle with olive oil generously. Use your hands to get the oil all over the vegetables then season with salt and cracked pepper. Place the tray in the oven and roast for 30 mins @ 400 degrees fahrenheit are until red pepper starts to blacken along the edges. Roasting the vegetables longer will result in a more savory and bold flavor.
*Measure all the ingredients into a large bowl with the roasted vegetables then use a immersion blender to blend well. Alternatively you can use a food processor as well but I love my immersion blender! Add extra salt to your taste buds and enjoy!
*This recipe does make a large batch (approx 1 liter) so be sure to use up or freeze any extras for a later date. I personally like to store my hummus in small wide mouth mason jars that I can then pull out of the freezer or fridge to have healthy snacks at home or healthy snacks for work.
