Hummus is something which reminds me of my Birthplace – Kuwait. That smooth creamy paste/ dip of chickpeas, tahini and garlic is a perfect add on for chicken, veggies, meat or any other savory entrée. The dip is so good that it can be eaten with just some pita bread and the combo is still amazing. Growing up, I used to slather hummus on everything. Initially, we used to buy it from the stores, but after realizing how easy it is to make it, there’s been no looking back. This recipe is made with roasted red bell peppers to give it a bit of earthiness along with the heroes of the dish – the chickpeas and tahini sauce. A dash of olive oil at the top just brings the dip to life.
