Sweet Red Pepper and Kalamata Olive Hummus

This tasty twist on traditional hummus is definitely a crowd pleaser…


  • 1 can chickpeas (save the water from the can)
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp lemon juice (if you don’t have this on hand, it’s ok without it, too)
  • 4 Peppadews – they’re small, sweet red peppers (I usually find these in the ‘Olive Bar’ section of the market)
  • 1/3 cup of Kalamata olives (green and purple)
  • 1 tsp roasted garlic


  • Combine the strained chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, peppers, olives and garlic in a food processor
  • Pour in a little bit of the water from the can of chickpeas and process the ingredients
  • Check the consistency of the hummus and add more of the water if the mixture is not loose and smooth
  • Process until you have reached your desired consistency (should be soft and smooth, not watery but not thick)
  • Serve with veggies and pita chips
