Eat Happy : Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Hi there.  Welcome back! We’re doing a weekly series that publishes every Tuesday wherein we are cooking through one of our FAVE cookbooks : Eat Happy! If you missed the intro post you can click on over here to read that.

We are starting with the very first recipe and working our way all the way through to the end. We will not be sharing with you the actual recipes that we cook. We WILL be sharing our experience during the whole process and our opinion of the outcome. So thanks for stopping by…and let’s dive in to this week’s recipe shall we?

Sooo, if you read last week’s installment of Eat Happy – then you already knew hummus was on the agenda for today.

And here we are…about to dive into some hummus. 🙂 I love hummus. I don’t eat it too often, but when it is in my fridge – it doesn’t last long. I’ll put it on just about anything. It’s like. The perfect condiment.

This was MY first experience with making hummus. I’ve seen my dad do it tons of times, but I just always opted for buying the best and most clean version of hummus that I could find at the grocery store. I can tell you though – after actually making this hummus…I won’t be buying any pre-made store brand hummus again.  It was crazy easy to do and soooo much better! Which I mean, is not a revolutionary concept. Most of the time the things you make at home taste better than the store bought version.  I’m just always surprised when I can make something that tastes so good…cause I have minimal talent in the kitchen. 😉

I have a mini food processor / blender contraption so I had to cut the recipe in half and make it in two batches which was also incredibly easy to do. All the amounts split evenly. {{insert all the praise hands for easy maths}}

So, I made the hummus then stashed it in the fridge to let it chill and set and get more yummy while I bathed and put the kids to bed. Then, I just wasn’t feeling eating hummus. I had some left over cheesy bread ( aka low carb pizza crust with melted cheese on top) and homemade marinara calling my name. However, I had blogger duties to attend to.

As you can see above – IDK why I even doubted my desire for hummus. That ish was so good. I ate it standing over the counter while pulling my baby carrots from their bag like a real classy gal.

I ended up having to stop myself from consuming way to many carrots and hummus. Cheesy bread be damned   –  apparently. 🙂

There you have it! Some easy peasy and delicious roasted red pepper hummus from Eat Happy. You need to get your hands on this cook book. It will feed your soul and body with only the good things that are grain and sugar free.
