1 min
  1. 6 ounces (170 g) roasted red pepper
  2. 1/2 cup (120 ml) water
  3. 2 tbsp (30 ml) olive oil
  4. ½ cup (120 g) tahini paste
  5. 2 ½ tbsp (38 ml) lemon juice
  6. 2 (6 g) garlic cloves, peeled
  7. 1 tsp hot sauce
  8. 3 cups (720 g) canned garbanzo beans, drained
  9. 1 tsp cumin powder
  10. 1 tsp salt
  11. ½ tsp black pepper
  1. Place all ingredients into machine. Switch to ON, then slowly turn variable speed knob from 1 to 10.
  2. Blend for one minute or until smooth. The longer you allow the machine to run, the creamier it will get (up to about 1-2 minutes). If mixture is not moving freely, add a little water (1 tsp at a time) to loosen it up.
  1. Canned foods aren't nearly as good for you as fresh or frozen. Prepare/soak garbanzo beans fresh if possible. Thanks to for the picture.
