Roasted Peppers Bean Hummus

Hummus is a Middle Eastern dip, spread, or savory dish made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. The standard garnish in the Middle East includes olive oil, a few whole chickpeas, parsley, and paprika.
As an appetizer and dip, diners scoop hummus with flatbread, such as pita. It is also served as part of a meze or as an accompaniment to falafel, grilled chicken, fish, or eggplant. Garnishes include chopped tomato, cucumber, coriander, parsley, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, whole chickpeas, olive oil, hard-boiled eggs, paprika, sumac, olives, pickles, and pine nuts. Outside the Middle East, it is sometimes served with tortilla chips or crackers.
I'm sure many of you tried hummus, but did you ever try bean hummus? If your answer is "no", then you must definitely try it. When Arovit challenged me to make a vegetarian recipe and I saw that there were beans and roasted peppers in the package, I immediately thought of bean hummus with roasted peppers. Is easy to make, tasty and healthy.
Beans make an excellent source of protein for vegetarians and vegans. They are also lower in calories and saturated fat than some other protein sources, such as meat and full fat or low fat dairy products.
Beans contain several vital nutrients, including folate. Folate is essential for overall health, to make healthy red blood cells, and help prevent neural tube defects in a fetus during pregnancy.
Beans are rich in polyphenols, which are a type of antioxidant. Antioxidants fight the effects of free radicals, which are damaging chemicals that the body produces during metabolism and other processes. Free radicals can cause cell damage that can result in various diseases. Antioxidants help the body remove free radicals. In this way, antioxidant-rich foods, such as beans, can help protect the body from disease.
Beans may help stabilize blood glucose levels or even prevent diabetes. Beans are high in fiber, which can help lower blood glucose. When a person eats beans, the fiber and healthful starches they contain can help create a feeling of fullness and satisfaction.
You can eat the bean hummus with fresh vegetables, pita, crackers, rice cakes, fresh bread, anything you like.
