This oil-free Roasted Red Pepper Humus requires only a handful of ingredients and a few minutes to make. If you have 10 minutes and a blender or food processor, you’ve got a delicious healthy snack.
So many people ask about easy go-to snacks, and this hummus is one of my favorites. In the summer, we go boating at the lake a lot . That means picnic-friendly foods, and this hummus is a great option. It’s usually accompanied by Smashed Chickpea Avocado Sandwiches.
We have no-oil hummus in our refrigerator most of the time to use as a dip and sandwich/veggie wrap spread.
Even when we go on road trips, we carry a small lunchbox cooler with this stuff.
Serve with sliced vegetables like carrots, cucumbers, broccoli, celery, bell peppers, and pita bread. It is also excellent as a sandwich or wrap spread.
Roasted Red Pepper Humus is terrific in veggie wraps like these Veggies in a Blanket. It doesn’t get much easier and tasty than this!
Store hummus in the refrigerator in a covered container up to 10 days.

Other Healthy Plant-Based Snack Ideas Include:
- 1 15 oz can chickpeas/ garbanzo beans or 1.5 cups fresh cooked
- 1/4 cup vegetable broth
- 1/2 cup roasted red peppers, drained packed in water not oil
- 3 green onions
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp tahini ground sesame seeds
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
If using canned beans, drain and rinse them first.
Place chickpeas, roasted red peppers, green onions, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, vegetable broth, cumin, and pepper in a blender or food processor.
Blend until smooth. I like to leave mine a little chunky. The longer blended, the smoother it will be.
