There was an amazing deal on green peppers last week at the green grocer, that was too good to pass up. I may have over estimated how many we would need, so started looking up other ways to use them instead of in stock standard salads.

Enter the glorious world of Pinterest, where this caught my eye, so off I set to roast the rest of my green peppers. Unfortunately I didn’t really think past this idea, and ended up with a container of them in the fridge, wondering what to do with them next.

Eventually on Saturday it all came together when I had a real craving for hummus and that’s how this recipe was born. A bit of a mish-mash of ingredients that turned out to be a delicious combination, and I finally got to put my roasted green peppers to good use.

Hummus really is one of the easiest things to make at home, simple and quick to whip up if you have surprise visitors or just want a healthy snack after work.
