Red Pepper Hummus with Smoked Paprika
Another Rose Elliot delight. This is a stylish and delicious variation on an old favourite, as well as being super-fast.
See how we made it in our slideshow below - here we used raw peppers instead of jarred.
Gluten-wheat-free if you suitable bread/crackers used or else the raw vegetable sticks option.

425g/14oz can chick peas, drained
