This Smoky Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is an easy to make hummus recipe that you can feel good about eating! A great healthy vegan snack that the whole family will love.
I saw a t-shirt a while back that said "Hummus is a Food Group" and I couldn't agree more.
It is one of those great foods that is over the top delicious, but also packed with nutrients. It has always been a go-to snack for me, and this Smoky Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is one of my all time favorites!
I love to serve it with fresh veggies and Van’s Simply Delicious® Crispy Whole Grain Baked Crackers. Van’s Simply Delicious® are gluten free and baked with oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa, and amaranth! With no artificial flavors or hydrogenated oils and 16 grams of nutrient dense whole grains, this is a snack with simple, clean ingredients that I can feel good about eating.

Now I do have something bad to say about Van’s Simply Delicious®.
If you let your children taste them, they will magically disappear. They aren't those gluten free crackers that taste like flax seeds or that has the texture of Styrofoam.
Just after I took this photo, Alex came into the kitchen looking for something to eat. At 11, he is always hungry. (I fear my grocery bills in a couple of years.)
Oh, but no.
He declared they were great and the next thing I knew he and Christian were shoveling the crackers from the platter into bowls and getting Skye in on the action.

Mmmmm, that sounds so good. Hummus is a favorite in my house and I can't wait to try this recipe.
I really do enjoy hummus, but can get a tad tired of the original flavor (or flavorless) taste. This looks really spicy and interesting and I bet my hubs will love it too! Really unique recipe!

I love hummus! I had a hummus party in May and it was so much fun! This recipe looks delicious. I hadn't heard of Cartwheel, so I clicked over there to check it out. It sounds super interesting.
Holy moly!! That looks yum. I've always wanted to try making some but its so intimidating to get right!! Must really try this recipe.
I have never tried red pepper hummus before, but this recipe looks so simple and good!
This actually looks pretty good. I love a good hummus and might have to give this one a try. I've never noticed those Vans crackers though so will have to check the next time I'm in Target.
I love roasted red pepper hummus. I am glad to have a recipe now as I have only bought it before. I am sure this is even better. Thanks.
I love, love, love red pepper hummus! I can't wait to try this recipe out on my family!
Hummus is a great party dish. I'd love to try this for a pool party this Summer. My family will love it.
Yum! I love homemade hummus! I make something similar using navy beans. Those crackers look delicious too!
Omg can we say yum?!? Red pepper hummus is my favorite! I eat it all the time!!!!
The color of this hummus is so bright and inviting. It looks like it tastes amazing.
I love love hummus!! its one of my favorite go to snacks. I also serve it as a snack when I have visitors at home with some crackers 🙂
That sounds so good. I bet it would be great for a fun summer party!
I love hummus! I would love to try this smokey roasted red pepper recipe. And those Van’s Simply Delicious crackers look good!
I love a delicious dip! I'm a big fan of spicy dishes and this would go over so well with our company on the weekend.
Those crackers look sooooo good. I can't wait to get them for my next party.
This Hummus sounds delish! I haven't been able to find dry chickpeas to cook myself. Would be nice to find them. I would much rather cook my own. Thanks for the great recipes.
I buy this flavor all the time but have never made my own!
