Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I got this recipe a few years ago from a friend in my ward. It is amazingly delicious. And much better than store-bought hummus!

1 ½ cups cooked or one 15oz can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed.
¼ cup tahini (sesame paste)
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, chopped
½ teaspoon sea salt
3 ½ oz roasted red peppers (from a jar)

Place beans in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth and well blended. Place in an tightly covered container and refrigerate. Flavors will blend and develop more when refrigerated. Hummus will keep for up to a week. Serve as a dip with whole grain crackers or vegetables, or use as a sandwich filling in pita bread.

Tiff's side note: I love this recipe of Marne's. It is also good without the red peppers, if you want to leave those out. My kids love dipping fresh veggies in this dip.
