Holiday Hummus #Christmas #Hummus

Roasted red pepper hummus gets dressed up with chopped cucumber and feta cheese for an easy, but fancy, holiday !

I especially love that it’s so fast and easy to go homemade – it seriously takes 5 minutes to mix up some hummus. Just throw everything in a food processor and turn it on. Bam! Plus, you get to control the ingredients and it’s a great, healthy dip to serve. Crowd pleaser every time.

For The Hummus

  • 1 1/2 cups chick peas, rinsed and drained (homemade in a slow cooker or store bought)
  • 1 8oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained, divided
  • 2 tablespoons water (or reserved liquid from chick peas)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (use less or more, to your liking)
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

For Serving

  • 1 cucumber, mostly peeled, chopped
  • 1/2 cup feta, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup diced roasted red peppers (reserved from jar)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1-2 teaspoons olive oil, to drizzle for serving (optional)
  • Pita chips or crackers

  2. Combine all of the hummus ingredients in a food processor, reserving about 1/4 cup of the roasted red peppers to chop and top the hummus with.
  3. Process until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  4. Transfer the hummus to your serving bowl. Add chopped cucumber, then feta, then reserved roasted red pepper. Sprinkle with parsley and drizzle with olive oil, if desired.
  5. Serve with pita chips, crackers or cut veggies.
