Raw Bean-Free Gluten Free Red Pepper Hummus Recipe

This hummus is made using tahini, as in traditional recipes, but instead of chickpeas, I use red bell pepper and a pinch of cumin for a richer flavor. Sesame powder helps absorb some of the excess liquid from the juicy bell pepper.


  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds, ground into a powder
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups seeded and diced red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup [gluten-free] tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


  1. In a food processor, process the sesame seeds, garlic, and salt into small pieces.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
  3. Will keep for 2 days in the fridge.
