Roasted Red Pepper and White Bean Dip

Does not buying pre-packaged hummus trump using canned beans?

I know it doesn’t look like much but this was good. I oven-roasted half a red bell pepper (left over from last night’s dinner) and blended with a can of cannellini beans, some smashed garlic, salt, and good extra virgin olive oil.

I made flat bread with this recipe to go with it using half whole wheat flour and half white flour. Luckily for me, I get done with work pretty early and can get started on the dough right after work. As most of the trouble with homemade bread is the rising time, that’s not a problem and everything came together in a couple of hours.
