Kid Snacks: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I know what you’re thinking–another condiment! But stay with me, hummus is so much more than that. It really can be the foundation of a meal, and it makes a great (nutritious)┬ásnack for big and little kids.

This is an obvious dip for veggies, crackers, and pita, but it also makes a great spread on sandwiches, wraps, or in burritos. Pair with all sorts of crunchy vegetables, olives, and feta in some sort of sandwich carrier, and you’ve got lunch or a light dinner.

The color of this hummus is vibrant, and it has a subtle kick from the garlic and the tahini. It feels luxurious, but it is so good for you – protein, fiber, minerals, and more.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
juice of one lemon
2 T tahini
1 clove garlic
1 1/2 whole roasted red peppers
pinch salt

Combine all ingredients, and whir in blender until very smooth.

I love recipes with one line instructions.

    My daughter at hummus and pita the other day at a restaurant and I decided it would make a great school lunch. I like the idea of adding roasted peppers.
