Ingredients List:

  • 1 can (15oz) chick peas or garbanzo beans drained, with the liquid set aside as reserve
  • ⅓ cup Sun Dried Tomatoes (approximately 8-10), plus a couple more for garnishing purposes (optional)
  • 2½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or 1½ lemons
  • 2 tablespoon tahini
  • 1-3 garlic cloves (depending on personal preference)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper (to taste)
  • ½ cup fresh basil (chop extra on the side for final garnish)
  • This Sun Dried Tomato hummus is a variation that is infused with Italian herbs and flavors. When you make your own hummus, you can ensure that only the freshest and most nutritional ingredients are included.


    1. Place chick peas or garbanzo beans in a high powered blender (Vitamix) or food processor, along with Sun Dried Tomatoes, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, garlic and salt.

    2. Pulse a few times then add 2 tablespoons of the liquid from the drained can. For a thicker hummus, use less liquid. Continue to pulse for 2-3 minutes. If using a food processor, you will need to scrape the sides intermittently. If using a Vitamix, you may choose to run the machine rather than just pulsing until you have the consistency that works for you.

    3. Place in a bowl of your choice and then add your garnishing of chopped sun dried tomatoes and basil. Serve with fresh veggies, crackers, pita bread or chips, or any other option you enjoy for dipping.

    You will know right away that this simple hummus dish is by no way simple in flavor. Building on the traditional taste and texture of hummus, you can’t help but to fall in love with the additional flavorings from the Sun Dried Tomatoes and basil. The consistency allows you to scoop a good chunk of hummus onto your veggies or chips without risk of losing any delicious hummus as it makes its way to your mouth.
