Sun Dried Tomato Basil Hummus

This flavorful hummus recipe comes together in less than five minutes. You’ll never want to buy the stuff from the store again. There are a number of combinations of flavors that would also work for this recipe. Instead of the tomatoes and basil, try adding one head of roasted garlic. This spread is great to dip raw vegetables in, pita bread, crackers or chips and also tastes wonderful in a sandwich or wrap instead of mayo.

What You Need:

1 – 15 oz can garbanzo beans, drained – not rinsed (reserve 1 Tbs can juices)
¼ cup sun dried tomatoes packed in oil
¼ basil
¼ cup tahini
2 small cloves garlic
1 Tbs juice from canned beans
Juice of ½ a lemon
1/8 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
Garnish with paprika

What To Do:

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor.

Process until smooth.

Bon Appétit!
