Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Hummus is a Mediterranean appetizer dip. This dip a small variation to the original hummus dip as I have used roasted red pepper in this recipe to give a little twist in the taste. Also, I have substituted tahini sauce with roasted sesame seeds in this recipe.  I have shared a similar recipe earlier named Avocado hummus in which Avocado was a special ingredient. The dip goes very well with pita chips, crackers, falafel and fresh veggies like celery, carrots, zucchini, cucumber. You could also use it as spread in a sandwich. This dip is really easy to prepare and goes well in parties.
