IRRESISTIBLE ROASTED RED PEPPER HUMMUS - INSPIRED TASTE



Irresistible Roasted Red Pepper Hummus - Inspired Taste image

When we first figured out how to make our own hummus, we were shocked at how easy (and fast) it is. With just a few simple tricks, you really can make creamy smooth hummus at home. Plus, since it really is so easy, we love adding extra flavor like sweet roasted red peppers. Two things here. First, we use canned chickpeas, which is much, much quicker than using dried. Some swear by soaking and cooking their own dried chickpeas, but we’re just not that organized and love that canned chickpeas means we can enjoy our hummus in 10 minutes. Second, our recipe calls for tahini, a creamy paste made from sesame seeds. You can usually find tahini in larger grocery stores or specialty markets, or you can actually make it at home.

Total Time 35 minutes

Prep Time 25 minutes

Cook Time 10 minutes

Yield Makes 6 Servings or approximately 1 1/2 cups

Number Of Ingredients 10

2 whole red bell peppers (substitute about 3/4 cup chopped jarred roasted red peppers)
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas or 1 1/2 cups (250 grams) cooked chickpeas
1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh lemon juice, about 1 large lemon
1/4 cup (60 ml) tahini, see our homemade tahini recipe
1 small garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
2 to 3 tablespoons (30 to 45 ml) water or aquafaba, see notes
Salt to taste

Steps:

  • Move an oven rack so that it is about 5 inches from the broiler. Turn oven broiler on.
  • Remove core of peppers then cut into large flat pieces. Arrange pepper pieces, skin-side up, on a baking sheet. Broil 5 to 10 minutes until the peppers skin has charred.
  • Add peppers to a resealable plastic bag, seal then wait 10 to 15 minutes until cool enough to handle. Or, add peppers to a bowl then cover with plastic wrap and wait 10 to 15 minutes. Gently peel away the charred pepper skin and discard. Reserve 1 to 2 pieces of the peeled roasted pepper pieces to use as a garnish when serving then roughly chop the rest.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine the tahini and lemon juice and process for 1 minute, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process for 30 seconds more. This extra time helps “whip” or “cream” the tahini, making the hummus smooth and creamy.
  • Add the olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the whipped tahini and lemon juice. Process for 30 seconds, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then process another 30 seconds or until well blended.
  • Open, drain, and rinse the chickpeas. Add half of the chickpeas to the food processor and process for 1 minute. Scrape sides and bottom of the bowl, then add remaining chickpeas and process until thick and quite smooth; 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the roasted peppers and continue to process for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth. If the hummus is too thick or still has tiny bits of chickpea, with the food processor turned on, slowly add 1 to 3 tablespoons of water or aquafaba until you are happy with the consistency.
  • Taste for salt and adjust as needed. Finely chop the reserved peppers. Spoon hummus into a bowl, make a small well in the middle and add the chopped peppers. Store homemade hummus in an airtight container and refrigerate up to one week.

MIDNIGHT PASTA WITH GARLIC, ANCHOVY, CAPERS AND RED PEP…



Midnight Pasta With Garlic, Anchovy, Capers and Red Pep… image

There’s something about pasta, cooked properly, that trumps all the other possibilities. And the smell of pasta boiling is a heady cheap thrill. With a few basic staple pantry items, a true feast can be ready in minutes. Good spaghetti, good olive oil, garlic and a little red pepper are all you need, plus some anchovy and capers if you have them.

Provided by David Tanis

Total Time 20 minutes

Yield 2 servings.

Number Of Ingredients 9

1/2 pound spaghetti
Salt
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
4 anchovy filets, rinsed and roughly chopped
1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
2 tablespoons chopped parsley, optional
Parmesan for grating, optional

Steps:

  • Put the spaghetti in a large pot of well-salted rapidly boiling water and cook only until firmly al dente. (Depending on the brand of pasta, this will be 8 to 10 minutes, but check frequently to see. )
  • While the pasta is cooking, warm the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute, without letting it brown. Stir in the anchovies, capers and red pepper and cook for a half-minute more, then turn off the heat.
  • Drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Pour in the garlic mixture, add the parsley, if using, and toss well to coat. Serve with grated Parmesan if desired.
