Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

Sun-Dried Tomatoes could possibly be one of my most favorite things on the planet. I remember in high school, for my “after school snack,” I would ask my mom to make me some homemade sun dried tomatoes. She did this by letting them cook in the oven for a few hours at a low temp. They were perfect and still my favorite way to eat them to this day.

I know most of us are trying to eat healthier for new years resolutions and goals for the new year. This can be hard for me because I just enjoy food a little too much, especially the snacky kinds. I also live for the Super Bowl and all the yummy finger foods that line themselves up on my table. So I compromised. I decided to make some hummus.

Hummus is definitely a healthier alternative to dips and other appetizers. It is primarily made up of garbanzo beans. The texture and flavor of hummus is definitely unique and definitely different than your typical dips, but I absolutely love it.

I wanted to make a hummus that involved sun-dried tomatoes because I knew they would compliment it perfectly. I found this recipe on All Recipes and have to say that this is by far one of the best hummuses I have ever tried and is definitely a keeper recipe in my home.

    I love hummus and haven’t made any in a long time. Am going to get the ingredients and make this today! I usually make a roasted red pepper hummus and it is delicious, but this will be a new one to try. I have a lot of celey and carrots in the house and they will make a good pairing with this hummus. Thank you for the great recipes!!
