Roasted red-pepper hummus
Soak your own chickpeas. You heard me. It's easy!
Buy super cheap dry beans and soak about 1.5-2 cups of them for up to 12 hours. Rinse. Remove any oddly shaped beans. Boil for 1-1.5 hours, however long it takes.
While they're cooking you'll want to wash and slice your red bell peppers. Douse them in olive oil. Really, smother them. Now broil - but watch so they don't burn! Roast them as long as you can.
Put your cooked chick peas in your food processor (or blender if you want a smooth hummus). Add water. Add some oil. Add lots of oil if you want! Add your bell peppers. Then add fresh minced garlic and salt to taste. BLEND!
It's that easy.
