Every once in a while it's nice to amp up a favourite recipe like this version of our Classic From Scratch Hummus. We like to dress up our hummus from time to time, like we did a few months back with this Classic Hummus With Pine Nuts, Grilled Artichokes + Olive Oil. This version includes a favourite of ours, fried salty capers, along with sun-dried tomatoes and delicious roasted peppers.
Red Pepper Hummus with Fried Capers & Sun-Dried Tomatoes:
1 recipe Classic From-Scratch Hummus
1 cup roasted red peppers (about 2 red peppers)
2 tbsp butter or olive oil
1/3 cup capers
1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped or sliced
Olive oil for garnish
3-4 tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley
Make your hummus using cooked GRAIN Kabuli Chickpeas, adding the red peppers to the blender with the rest of the ingredients from our Classic From-Scratch Hummus. Transfer to a clean serving bowl. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the capers for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the pan when they are crispy.
Top the hummus generously with the fried capers, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, and parsley. Serve with crackers or crusty sourdough.
