Mediterranean Hummus

Bell peppers and olives give a nice twist to a classic hummus recipe!

In a food processor, combine 1/4 cup chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers, 1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 teaspoons olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. black pepper, 2 garlic cloves, and 1 (15-ounce) drained and rinsed can of chickpeas.

Process until smooth - you'll probably want to stop once or twice to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a spatula.

Transfer to an air-tight container and store this yummy hummus in the fridge. It's great with pita wedges or crudites for dipping, such as bell pepper strips or cucumbers! 2 tablespoons of hummus are 50 calories.

bottled roasted red bell peppers $2.79
kalamata olives $5.99
canned chickpeas $1.99
