Pressure Cooker Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is much healthier than store bought hummus.
I love to make everything I make from scratch and having a Pressure Cooker, sure makes it easy to make a delicious Hummus.
My Pressure Cooker Roasted Onion & Garlic Hummus is delicious and I have scaled down the steps to make the process even simpler!
Start with fresh, raw Garbanzo Beans and Water.
If you have a gas stove, use tongs and char the peppers right over the flame, otherwise, roast them in the oven until charred.
Once charred, stick them in a paper bag and close it up, so that the skin will steam off.
It will be really easy to peel off the skin and then seed the peppers
When the Garbanzo Beans are finished their first cook in the Pressure Cooker, release the pressure and add some salt and cook a bit more.
Drain the liquid from the Garbanzo Beans and reserve. If you are using a Salbree Steamer/Strainer Basket, just remove the basket with the Chick Peas and dump into the food processor.
Add some of the reserved water until you get the right consistency.
I used about 3/4 cup of bean water. Open the lid of the food processor and push down the mixture.
Season the hummus with cumin and more salt to taste. Once very smooth, add the red pepper and process some more. I like to see a bits of red pepper in my hummus.
