Method

  1. Rinse and drain the chickpeas, then tip them into a food processor. Peel the garlic and crush in with the chickpeas, along with plenty of salt and pepper. Whizz briefly.
  2. Remove any stray seeds from the peppers, then add them to the processor with the lemon juice, olive oil and chilli. Blitz again until really smooth. Taste and add extra seasoning and chilli for more of a kick, if you like.
  3. Spoon into a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and serve with celery sticks, radishes and a stack of breadsticks for dipping.

I added sesame oil and was maybe a bit to enthusiastic with it because it overpowered the peppers a bit. However I think the peppers in general also added less flavor than I expected. It is a very nice humous though only quite subtle. I found it was also a bit more wet than when I make regular humous (which is not a criticism just an observation). I combined this Humous with the carrot and houmous roll ups recipe (great combination!!) http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1377639/carrot-and-houmous-rollups

I only used one pepper which I roasted with garlic, chilli and basil inside. Even without a blender, it came out pretty good but I added an extra garlic at the last min to give the flavour a boost.

Very tasty. The chili leaves a pleasant tingle on the tongue.

Really easy and quick recipe. It tastes much better than shop-bought in my opinion. I added a tbsp of greek yoghurt to bind the mixture.

Easy to make and tastes great. We found that it tasted better the day after though so will make it in advance of when I need it next time. I used fresh roasted peppers though as I was already roasting some for another dish.

The best houmous I've made yet. I replaced 1 tbsp of olive oil with 1 tbsp of Tahini paste.
