Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and Ginger Carrot Sesame Dip

Hummus is great!  I really enjoy eating it with fresh vegetables.  I prefer to make my own and this special one gets enough moisture from its other ingredients that it doesn’t even need any oil.  How great is that?  I promise that it will still be creamy and spreadable. You’ll notice that I serve it here with some chive-tied crudites and shrimp cocktail.  I hope that you enjoy!
