Kristy's Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Kristy's Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Recipe 

You will need:
2 red peppers
3 cans of chickpeas 
6 cloves of garlic
juice of one lemon
salt/pepper to taste
several glugs of olive oil
several splashes of drinking water (depending on consistency)

First, wash and deseed your peppers and add a splash or two of olive oil and a pinch of salt- rub into the pepper. Roast for about 30 mins at around 170 degrees or until the skins look slightly wrinkled. When they are done leave to cool. 

Next, prepare garlic cloves and throw them in the blender with about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Then drain and rinse your canned chickpeas and add them to the blender. Add the cooled roasted red pepper and add the juice of one lemon and a few pinches of salt. 

Now whizz it all up... (depending on the size of your blender you may have to do a few batches) and if it's a bit thick you can add more olive oil or a bit of driking water to get your desired consistency. 

Lastly, add salt/pepper to taste.
(Just keep tasting... and keep adding until it's just right for you)
Sprinkle with paprika to serve
