If yesterday’s preparation was all about Beany Beetroot Dip, then today was all about Roasted Capsicum Hummus.

  1. I love roasted pepper hummus. It's definitely one of my favorites. I've never made my own hummus before, but if I ever did I think I would add a squeeze of stone ground mustard for some spice.

  2. Oh so YUMMY!! Red pepper hummus is my FAVE and I am definitely making this soon!! 😀

    I just made Wannabe Chef's dessert hummus, so my 'secret' ingredients were PB, maple syrup and chocolate chips! A bit different from the ordinary hummus ingredients list! 😛

  3. Where's my party invite?

    Seriously have marked these recipes down and will take them to my next "bring a dish" party 🙂
    You rock!

  4. Hi there, I love your blog and look foward to every new post. I'm wondering if you have any races/tri events coming up? I've discovered a love for getting fit and strong and have found your blog very motivational, I'm training for an 8km fun run in May, The Mothers Day Classic..I love hearing about your training routines..really gives me a boost!..Natalie

  5. Delish. Love a good dip, and roasting the capo gives a sweet hit! Garlic is my secret ingredient, if you'd call garlic a secret. I love the stuff. Yum! 🙂

  6. Oh I love hummus, but I can't eat it for a while, cause I used to make dips for the farmer's markets and got so sick of tasting them, that I can't eat them, which is part of the reason I have stopped selling them!
