When I met Nigella Lawson at an afternoon tea event a few years ago, her Nigella Express cookbook had just been released, and the tea menu included her red pepper hummus from the cookbook. It was served on little rectangles of soft pita bread, which was probably intentional since that was also the way it was photographed in her cookbook.
Even though I’ve owned the book for years, I’ve never made this red pepper hummus until now, and I could kick myself for not making it sooner! The hummus has a touch of creaminess from the cream cheese, great flavor from the roasted red peppers, and a luscious smoothness from the garlic oil, which I also drizzled on top of each bite. Although I ate mine with triangles of flour tortillas, I bet this would work great as a healthy dip for chips and veggies at next week’s multitude of Super Bowl parties. You can find the recipe here or in Nigella Express.
