Smokey Fire Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
This recipe is not 100% raw. I used roasted red peppers which I have to say really took this hummus to another level of flavor. Hummus is one of those foods that I definitely enjoy but rarely make and I don’t really understand why. It seems like every time I have it, I say to myself, “Where has this been all my life!” I sort of bent the rules on hummus, I left out the chickpeas (garbanzo beans), and replaced them with zucchini which turned out quite nice.
