Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

Race day is getting closer and closer. That means a certain someone checks weather.com multiple times a day. Yes, that would be me. I’m hoping that this little picture next to Saturday magically turns into a cloud, or even better, a sun!

Anyone else obsessed with checking the weather? I know that at the very least, my sister is – I guess it runs in the family! For a short period of my life, I actually wanted to be a meteorologist. Or a tornado chaser – I thought that would be the coolest job ever! I still think it would be pretty cool. But in the meantime, if you ever want to know the weather forecast, I’m your girl.

Enough worrying about the weather! How about I share my new favorite hummus recipe instead?

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus! I don’t know why I’ve taken so long to make this fabulous combination. I love sun-dried tomatoes. I can eat them right out of the jar. One day soon, I will make my own.

This is by far the best hummus I’ve made –  so full of delicious flavors! And it’s as easy as 1 2 3!

1 – Put all the ingredients in a food processor.

2 – Blend until smooth.

3 – Enjoy!

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

Ingredients:

  • 1 15 oz can of garbanzo beans
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 14 sun-dried tomatoes, about 2 oz (this doesn’t need to be exact!)
  • 2 tbsp tahini paste
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 4 tbsp olive oil *Note – My sun-dried tomatoes were not packed in olive oil.

Directions:

  1. Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans.
  2. Put the all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth. *If you have a smaller food processor, I’d suggest first adding the garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, tahini, lemon juice, salt, paprika and olive oil pulsing until well combined, and then adding the garbanzo beans little by little and pulsing until smooth.
  3. Enjoy!

    I have only made hummus once and for some reason, it didn’t turn out very good.
