Chick Pea and Roasted Pepper Dip

This healthy dip is easy to make and taste great with crudites such as cucumbers, peppers, zucchini and celery. You can substitute jarred roasted peppers if you wish but freshly roasted peppers are best. Chick peas are high in dietary fiber, protein, folate and zinc.

  1. I love this. It’s easy, it tastes great, it’s lower in calories and I don’t miss them. I’ve made this a few times now, and the recipe is perfect the way it is. This last time I added a couple green olives and liked the addition. I also noticed, if I roast the rep pepper a little longer so they are really soft, the texture seems to come out smoother. But either way, I like it a lot. I usually eat it with cucumbers but have also eaten it with bread and tortilla chips.

  2. I made it just as listed and it was delicious. Very happy to find a low point (WW) dip that is so good and easy.

  3. This was amazing! I used chipotles in Adobe sauce cause that’s what i had on hand and it turned out perfect!

  4. This looks delicious!! Just wondering for points purposes, It says serves 4, so is that about 1/2 c. per serving?

  5. I didn't love this 🙁 I do love chickpeas and roasted red peppers, I think it was a little heavy on the parley and garlic. But I love love love almost everything else I make from your site and its the first place I look when I want to plan dinner!

  6. I made this tonight with a few tweeks due to lack of ingredients and a general laziness (didn't want to go to the grocery store). It was very good! 2 cans garbanzo beans, 1/2 jar roasted red peppers, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic. YUMMY!

    Do you have the updated points plus value (looks like old WW points here) and additional nutrition facts for this one? Thanks!

  8. made this and it came out great! saved some liquid from the garbanzo beans instead of adding water for the food processor

    1. I'm interested in knowing this as well. I am doing WW Points Plus from home and I do not have access to the recipe builder just yet.

  9. I make something similar from Cooking Light – it uses Cannellini beans instead of chick peas and a few other swaps. It's a little bit lighter in taste.
