Goat cheese stuffed sweet peppers with a creamy, spicy hummus layer and lots of fun garnish toppings. The perfect, quick summer appetizer!
1) For whipped goat cheese, combine goat cheese, cream, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Use a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or a hand mixer to whip the mixture until smooth. If it’s not getting smooth, add a bit more cream. The finished mixture should be the consistency of frosting.
2) Lay out washed sweet peppers on a tray and cut a slice off the top of each pepper (leave the stems intact). Scoop out any seeds in the peppers.
3) Scoop the whipped goat cheese into a plastic bag. Seal it and slice a corner off the bag. Pipe the goat cheese into each pepper.
4) Mix spicy hummus together and scoop it into a second plastic bag. Pipe the hummus on top of the goat cheese layer.
Top each pepper with fresh chives, thinly sliced red peppers, or lightly toasted pine nuts. Serve immediately or chill for a few hours. They are best served the same day.
