Make sure to pick roasted red peppers in a jar of brine and not oil as these will help to keep your Red Pepper Hummus low on calories and Points.
We prefer roasted red peppers from a jar as they have a really sweet, intense flavour. But, if you wanted to roast your red peppers in the oven then you can just place them on an oven tray and spray with low calorie cooking spray. Cook at 150°C-180° for 30 minutes or so.
The smoked paprika gives this Red Pepper Hummus a really tangy flavour, but it’s entirely optional and you can always leave it out if you’d prefer!
Serve this Red Pepper Hummus with crudités, rice crackers or even on a slice of toast!
