Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Tostados

written by Julie Cohn

My son graduates from high school next week, and we have several family members visiting (and staying with us) from out of town. Like any good hostess, I want our house to be clean, comfortable, and looking its best for our guests, so have been feverishly preparing with extra cleaning, sprucing up, and meal preparation.  As much as I love when family and friends come to visit, it is a stressful time, and when I get stressed, I often forget to eat and take time for myself.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Tostados 5Before things get too hectic, I took a one-hour break from the chaos, made a nice lunch of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Tostados, poured a glass of fresh lemonade, and sat by the pool to relax.  Thanks to Bush’s Beans, these tostados were effortless to make, and even easier to eat….I wish my graduation preparations were as easy!

Bush’s Beans Hummus Made Easy Mixes

Have you heard about Bush’s Beans new Hummus Made Easy mixes?   Hummus Made Easy is olive oil, herbs, spices, and tahini, blended in a handy little packet.  Add a food processor and these mixes transform an ordinary can of Bush’s garbanzo or black beans into a delicious, ready-to-eat hummus.  There is no easier way to make hummus at home–in three simple steps I made a savory, flavorful hummus that rivals my local Lebanese deli!

Hummus Made Easy is available at Walmart in three appetizing flavors: Classic, Southwest Black Beans, and Roasted Red Pepper.  These blends can be enhanced with your choice of mix-ins (veggies, cheese, etc) but are scrumptious on their own.

Roasted Red Pepper tostados are a great way to make a healthy and appetizing lunch or snack without a ton of work, yet I felt like I was having a gourmet meal.  It was nice to mix up my lunch in five minutes (1 for the hummus, 4 to cut the veggies), sit by the pool, and enjoy the cooler weather…and now that I have two hummus flavors already made, I can tostados for lunch for the rest of the week!
