Sun Dried Tomato Hummus is made with all simple, healthy, & wholesome ingredients. Its a completely vegan recipe too!

  • Chickpeas: Chickpeas are of course the base of this hummus recipe! You will need 2 15 oz cans.

How to make Sun Dried Tomato Hummus…

Making homemade hummus may seem daunting, but it is actually a super easy process! You pretty much add the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth & creamy. And that’s it!

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Start by draining and rinsing the chickpeas.  Add them to a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil.  Then reduce the heat and let simmer for about 20 minutes and until the chickpeas are falling apart a bit.
  2. Add the chickpeas to a high speed blender or food processor.  Blend the chickpeas by themselves for a few minutes.
  3. Next add in the sun dried tomatoes, sun dried tomato oil, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, and 4 tbsp of the water.  Blend until smooth, adding more water as needed.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve with pita chips or bread & veggies.  Enjoy!

Homemade Hummus Recipe tips…

Follow the tips below for the perfect Sun Dried Tomato Hummus each & every time:

  • Use a high speed blender or food processor! I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again … this really is key. If you do not use one of these you may have trouble reaching the smooth & creamy texture.
  • Add more water as needed! Depending on your blender or your desired consistency, you may need more or less water than listed in the ingredients. You can also use more oil to help the blending.
  • Season to your liking! This seems obvious, but really is so important. Add salt, pepper, garlic, lemon juice, and all that good stuff to taste.
  • Add the garnish on top! Not only do the sun dried tomatoes and herbs look beautiful, but they also add a nice texture and bite. It truly elevates the hummus.

How to serve this recipe…

I recommend you serve this recipe with pita chips, carrot sticks, and celery sticks … all your classic hummus pairings! You could even add a scoop to your dinner, like as a topping of a grain bowl or as dipping for your protein option.

However, my absolute favorite thing to serve this sun dried tomato hummus with is homemade pita chips! They’re super easy to make and delicious too.

Here’s how I make mine:

  1. Cut up pita bread into triangles.
  2. Spread onto a baking tray & spray or drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.
  4. Flip & bake for another 5 minutes.
