Happy Sunday to you all!  This month’s Recipe Redux is all about small bites and finger foods.  Graduations, bridal and baby showers, or just a romantic picnic are the perfect times to enjoy sampling small bites and trying out different flavors.

So instead of opting for a store-bought hummus which can sometimes have added ingredients that you may not want, why not throw together this simple but healthy homemade hummus.

Roasted Garlic Hummus with Marinated Red Peppers

Hummus is so versatile, which is why I love it.  You can choose to make it any way you like by adding various toppings and or by mixing in various vegetables and herbs.  Most of all its healthy and you are using your own fresh ingredients.

Here, I sliced up two warm pitas into bite sized wedges to make it easier for dipping and snacking.  You can also use fresh vegetables cut into bite sized pieces, like carrots, celery and cucumbers, just to name a few.

For the final touch, I added chopped red peppers that were marinated in olive oil and a sprinkle of dried rosemary leaves.  It was absolutely delicious, so feel free to get creative and see what other tasty variations you come up with.  Enjoy!
