Expert Tips

Roasted red peppers give hummus an added zing loaded with vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps protect the body from damage.

If a food processor is not available, mash the chickpeas with a fork. The mixture may be slightly lumpy, but the texture does not interfere with the flavor.

Place bell peppers on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 5 to 10 minutes, rotating peppers as skin blackens. Wrap peppers in damp paper towels and place in plastic bag. Cool 10 minutes. Peel skin from peppers; discard skin. Use roasted peppers as directed in recipe.
