Inspired by Kiwi Kathy's yummy Hummus my sis came up with this rather delicious twist on hummus. Its a great dip for crudites or crackers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First make your hummus: Combine chickpeas, applesauce, oil, water, tahini and spices in a tall bowl. Using a hand-held blender whizz into a smooth paste. It may be runnier than normal hummus, but that will change during baking, so just leave it like that (You can also use your food processor for this).
  2. Pour the hummus into a small oven proof dish. Sprinkle with the chopped bell pepper and cheese.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C/350°F for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Enjoy! :).

This is a little different what I'm I use. I enjoyed this for lunch served with lentil chips and carrot sticks. The applesauce gave a little sweetness to the hummus. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Boy this is a fantastic dip! The applesauce added a slight sweetness which was perfect with the red bell peppers. The melty cheese on top was a wonderful addition. Served this with lowfat triscuits and loved it - thanks for sharing a keeper! Made for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011
