Let's get ready for some football!!!! Super Bowl is here and that means it's time to dig in to some classic tasty game-time grub.
Whether the kids want to watch the entire game like their parents do or not, one thing you want to make sure of is that everyone eats (and enjoys) the same food.
This thick and creamy dip has a beautiful bright red color and rich creamy flavor, but instead of using a ton of oil to thicken it I add sweet roasted bell peppers which make for an equally smooth texture while eliminating a lot of the fat and calories that define most football fare.
So while the kids are running around having fun and the parents are enjoying the commercials -- I mean the game! -- a dip like this Red Bell Pepper Hummus with tons of cut up veggies on the side are a great way to keep everyone's bellies full of healthy foods that are darn good too.
Red Bell Pepper Hummus (makes 1 1/2 cups )
- 1 can garbanzo beans
- 1/2 of a 12 ounce jar roasted red bell peppers (about 1 pepper)
- 1 garlic clove
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
