Roasted bell peppers hummus is a recipe you want to prepare for your parties: made with precooked Garbanzo beans, this recipe is very easy to make, but at least once in your life try it with dried beans! Compared to the traditional hummus I eliminated the lemon juice and added bell peppers and goat cheese. Tahini is a delicious traditional ingredient for hummus, but in case it is not available, try to replace it with half amount of peanuts butter: delicious!
  • 1 Lb (450 g) cooked Garbanzo beans (alternatively 1 cup of dried Garbanzo beans)
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 1 oz (55 g) goat cheese
  • 6 tbsp Tahini
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds

  • 1 dash black pepper
  • to taste table salt

After that, simmer the beans a couple of hours, removing the lather with a slotted spoon. Finally, raise the beans and store in the fridge until ready to use.
