Q: My husband and I think the roasted red pepper hummus at Brick Store Pub in Decatur is the best we've ever tasted. We would love to have the recipe to try at home.

A: Owner Tom Moore was happy to scale down his recipe for this appetizer. He notes that this recipe is very adaptable to taste, adding, "Some might like more garlic or salt, you could leave out the red pepper, or roast the garlic first. You could serve it warm or cold with veggies, crackers or bread; or try using as a spread on sandwiches."
