Red Pepper Houmous

Red pepper houmous is really easy to make and a nice change from the plain variety. Making your own houmous also means it can be low in fat and salt and generally quite healthy. It's really good to take to a barbecue or if you are having lunch al fresco at home.

You need:
410g tin of chickpeas
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 roasted red peppers from a jar - in brine is healthier than in oil
squeeze of lemon juice
2 tbsp. olive oil

Put the chickpeas and garlic in a food processor with some salt and pepper, then pulse. Add the peppers, lemon juice and oil and pulse until you have a smooth paste. Spoon into a bowl and serve with crudites or breadsticks.
