Instead of taking out the olive oil, which is good for you, I would increase the amount- 1/2T, please! If you cook in water, it is not sauteeing, rather steaming or boiling.
But I agree with the previous commenter about the sweetener- leave it out! Who ever heard of hummus sweetened- ridiculous! Also, the sweet red peppers are sweet.
Try cooking dried beans- it's not much work and so much better.

Take out the oil and the splenda (use stevia instead if you need the sweetner, probably don't). Use water to saute the veggies. That I will eat!

Great recipe. You can also use roasted red peppers from a jar. This is a very good dip for vegetables.
It can also be spiced up with red pepper flakes. M-m-m-m.
