Healthy Superbowl Snacks – Homemade Red Pepper Hummus, Veggie Wraps and Whole Grain Sprouted Chips

Homemade Red Pepper Hummus
Ingredients:
1 can organic unsalted chickpeas (I prefer to buy a bag of dried beans. The directions are on the bag)
1/2 cup chickpea water (from can)
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves
3 tablespoons tahini (sesame butter)
Slice of Lemon
1/2 cup roasted red peppers (*Or broil a whole red pepper to add amazing flavor)

*Broil a whole red pepper, turning every 4-7 minutes for 20 minutes or until skin is charred. Place the red pepper in a covered bowl for 3 minutes. The skin should come right off the pepper.

Directions:
Place all ingredients except the red peppers in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the Chickpea water if you would like the hummus a little creamier. Add the roasted red peppers and blend until the peppers are to your liking.
