Red Bell Pepper Hummus Video

Since we came home from vacation, the kids have been going to a few different camps. When I was a kid I went to the same swimming pool for 3 months straight, which I loved, but watching my kids pick different camps that excite them is pretty darn inspiring. Chloe’s passion for the past few years has been horses, so she’s spent the past few weeks at a farm and riding day camp. When I pick her up I can barely pry her away she loves it so much even covered with flies and dust. Kenya has been at art, zoo and Minecraft camps and hits improv and how to make your own toys in the coming weeks while Chloe will be at magical fairy camp. I don’t even know if they had these types of camps when I was a kid?!

Red Bell Pepper Hummus

Most of the camps don’t serve lunch, so I’ve been doing a summer series with #camplunch to share what I’ve been packing them on Instagram and Facebook. It’s been pretty hot, especially when the kids are outdoors, so I’ve been packing a lot of dips, chips and chopped vegetables that are easy to munch on and will stay fresh till lunch with an ice pack in their bento style lunchbox.

One of the kids favorite dips is this Red Bell Pepper Hummus. It’s packed with vegetarian protein from the garbanzo beans and tahini and has a really pretty color as well as a sweet, smokiness from the red bell peppers. Watch this Red Bell Pepper Hummus Video to see a few tips for making it yourself. You can totally use jarred roast bell peppers for this recipe, but if you’ve never tried making them fresh, watch this How to Roast a Red Bell Pepper Video. It’s more than worth the effort!

    Sounds great; however, you missed one thing -- red peppers are rich in vitamin C!
