Vegan MoFo Day 3 - Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
We subscribe to Foxtail Farm, a Community Supported Agriculture farm. We get an amazing variety of seasonal veggies (and a little fruit sometimes) every week and it's awesomely amazing. I actually feel quite guilty for never mentioning it on the blog before.
We've been getting red peppers for the last few weeks. I've never roasted them before, but I did a few days ago with amazing results (though I should have left them in the broiler a bit longer ... I'm scared of char, I guess).
So I made roasted red pepper hummus on Wednesday night.
Sea salted pita chips are definitely my favorite hummus vehicle.
I used this recipe. Except I didn't add the basil. I did, on the other hand, add some cayanne pepper (I don't know ... 1/4 teaspoon maybe?) and about 1/4 cup of water, since we here in the Piggy household like our hummus a little creamier.
It's gone already, by the way. I just finished it of with the last of the pita chips.
