A combination of zesty and sour, this play on hummus may look benign, but it has a spicy kick and will give some heat to keep you energized for the game.


  • 1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup roasted red peppers (from the jar, rinsed)
  • ½ cup artichoke hearts, packed in water and rinsed
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (or Bragg's liquid aminos or low-sodium soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup kalamata olives, pitted (optional, or as garnish)


  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor, fitted with an S-blade. Process until well-combined.
  2. Serve with baked tortilla chips, whole grain crackers, and/or raw vegetables.
