Who is a Zupas fan?! My family and I recently went back to visit Utah and play in the mountains. Oh, my heart…my poor, aching heart!!! and I had to have some of my favorites to eat. Plenty of dranky dranks and sugar cookies, and perhaps one of my most nostalgic places, Zupas. We have a few copycat recipes here, like our Nuts About Berries Salad, Wisconsin Cauliflower Soup, and now this – Roasted Red Pepper Hummus BLT.
My little family and I were running by my favorite drive-through drink and cookie gas station, when supper time struck! We to pick up some dinner, so Zupas it was! I ran in, knew what I wanted, and then quickly ordered my husband a sandwich to eat on our way down to Moab. Honestly I can’t even remember what I ordered him, but I knew that I wanted to make it at home. I tweaked my hummus recipe and made a roasted red pepper hummus. Delish!
Slathered it all over some ciabatta bread and threw in some yummy fillings…
…and took a really big bite. Like how do you even take a bite out of this thing? It wasn’t pretty. Just don’t make this for a first date or anything because it’ll probably end up all over your face and hands. Sorry not sorry!
