I’m back! I had some really stressful couple of weeks and I didn’t have time to post anything new on the blog. Even though I didn’t post anything new in a while, you should know I didn’t take a break from cooking!

I cook daily and this roasted red pepper hummus recipe is one of the recipes I made last week. I wanted to make this hummus recipe for a while now, as I first saw it here on Ella’s blog and it sounded delicious! I’m glad I gave it a try! It’s really easy to make and you’ll love the rich flavor given by the roasted red peppers and sweet paprika. If you buy already roasted red peppers, this will get even easier!

So, here it is my roasted red pepper hummus recipe! Enjoy 🙂

P.S. I LOVE Lebanese cuisine. If you love it too, check out Ottolenghi: The Cookbook. His recipes are truly inspiring!
