Recipe: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I've been making this hummus for years and kind of just came up with the recipe one day while I was playing in the kitchen.  I love simple recipes with minimal, yet quality ingredients and that is exactly what this is.  This recipe is also insanely easy to make, seriously anyone no matter their cooking skill can whip this up.  I can guarantee that it always impresses people too and they will think you worked way harder than you actually did, which is always a win in my book.  It's fun to bring to a party, serve as an appetizer to dinner, or just have it on hand for a snack.  It's a quick, very healthy recipe that is perfect to make for this weekend and enjoy!

-1 garlic clove
-1 can chickpeas, drained (low sodium optional)
-2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
-1 roasted red pepper.

-In a food processor process garlic until finely chopped.
-Add chickpeas and process until smooth.
-Next add the extra virgin olive oil and process until incorporated.
-Lastly, add the roasted red pepper to the mixture and process until completely smooth (see pictures for texture reference).
-Refrigerate to thicken.
