Red pepper hummus (well, technically just a "chickpea puree" since there's no tahini):
- 1 can chick peas
- 1 roasted red pepper, peeled and seeded
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp hot pepper flakes
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- salt to taste
Place all the ingredients in a tall plastic cup or similar container (1-quart plastic yogurt containers work well) and use your immersion blender to puree until smooth. Garnish with a drizzle of good olive oil and serve with toasted pita chips for a delicious, nutritious snack.
