Smoky White Bean and Roasted Yellow Pepper Hummus [Vegan]

I don't know why I didn't think of it myself, but luckily, Trader Joe's did. After nearly single-handedly devouring a tub of their Chipotle Pepper Hummus, I knew I had to make my own version, but without the the oil and bumping up the smoky chipotle flavor.

Smoky White Bean and Roasted Yellow Pepper Hummus [Vegan]

This Recipe is :



2 cups


  • 2 roasted yellow or orange bell peppers
  • 1 15 oz. can of white navy beans, rinsed and drained
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tsp. chipotle in adobo sauce
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 tsp. chipotle chile powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. chipotle hot sauce


  1. Place the bell peppers, the navy beans, and the lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor.  Blend until smooth.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.





I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.

I will never use other than chickpeas for hummus... But this is a very nice idea!

Those advertisements are what help keep their pages free. That being said, that may be something to do with your settings Julie, because I don't have pop up ads.

I LOVE your posts here and your page but I really, really dislike those videos that pop up and play over and over each time you go to a new page. ADVERTISEMENTS and it really takes away from your page. I go to learn recipes and such and shouldn't have to deal with those. They aren't about anything on your page. just ads. PLEASE stop using them
