Oh boy, where do I begin?!  I haven’t been this excited about a recipe in a while! For starters, I’ll say this sun-dried tomato hummus offers an absolute explosion of flavors, ranging from savory to slightly sweet to tangy to nutty.

To quote my husband, Jeff, after he tried it for the first time:

“Oh wow, this stuff is addicting! I could eat just a bowl of this hummus by itself for lunch and I’d be very happy.”

Why this Recipe Works:

  • When it comes to the ingredients, I’m especially proud of this recipe because all of the ingredients are health-promoting, unlike some store bought hummuses that are loaded with excess oil and other junk.
  • Nothing beats homemade hummus – you’ll notice immediately how fresh it tastes and the color is simply gorgeous.
  • This sun-dried tomato hummus is the perfect dip to serve at a party, the perfect hummus to have for a snack, and the perfect spread for a sandwich.  In fact, my toddler boys have been eating this hummus on bread for lunch for the past week straight! They love it, too. This recipe also goes well with my Crunchy Salt and Pepper Pita Chips.
  • To top it all off, it’s ridiculously easy to make!

Is homemade hummus healthy?

  • Yes! This recipe contains ZERO oil (except for whatever may be on your sun-dried tomatoes), unlike most packaged hummuses. Therefore, this is a healthy snack that you can feel good about.
  • However, if you’d like to drizzle the surface of the hummus to make the appearance pop when serving it to a crowd, I recommend using a small amount of a higher quality oil such as extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil.

Top Tips for Making Sun-dried Tomato Hummus:

  • For a “less thick” hummus, add 1 – 2 teaspoons of water, extra virgin olive oil, avocado oil, or cold-pressed flax oil to the mix.
  • If you want to make your hummus super special, just before serving, top it with a light drizzle of olive oil or avocado oil and garnish with extra sun-dried tomatoes. You can even sprinkle some chopped basil on there too.
  • This hummus can store in the fridge for about two weeks.
  • No food processor? You can blend everything in a blender as well.
