Sun Dried Tomato Hummus

August 9, 2013Teresa

2013 – Gluten Free Living

This Sun Dried Tomato Hummus recipe is spectacular! It has all the regular ingredients you’d expect in hummus. Tahini (sesame paste), chick peas, lemon, garlic, and tamari soy sauce (a gluten free, non-GMO, low sodium soy sauce). But with this caveat: a few dashes of cayenne pepper and sun dried tomatoes with herbs. Wow, this hummus was so wonderful. I based the recipe on my Simply Delicious Homemade Hummus that I got from WholeFoodsMarket. The addition of sun-dried tomatoes was inspired by D Amy Health.

I made this luscious hummus recipe a few weeks ago when I was making snacks for our church’s Vacation Bible School team. They loved the many delicious hummus recipes I brought in. Especially because I served them with fresh veggies dippers. These also tasted really great with sun chips, crackers and pita bread dippers.

Sun Dried Tomato Hummus not only tastes fantastic, but it is healthy, low calorie, gluten free, and vegan. This is an excellent choice for after-school snacks for kids. When it ‘s served with veggies they get so many really healthy ingredients at the same time. It’s also a great finger food appetizer to take to parties and potlucks. I like bringing hummus to long meetings so everyone has something to snack on while going over tedious business matters! 🙂

This is one humdinger of a hummus recipe. Sun Dried Tomato Hummus will catch your attention and make you long for another taste. It has just enough zip with the cayenne pepper to make it special. The scrumptious taste of the tomatoes, herbs and chick peas make this incredibly heavenly on the palate.

If you’re a tomato lover like me, you’ll love the addition of the sun dried tomatoes. And, if you like just a little bit of heat, then the cayenne pepper is subtle but effective. Why don’t you give this recipe a try soon?

I initially posted this recipe in August 2013. My pictures were taken in a rush and did not adequately reflect the greatness of this recipe. I recently remade the recipe (September 2019) for our college group one Sunday night. This was the first thing to go that night even though we had a lot of food. Many of them love healthy snacks so this fit the bill.

I adjusted the recipe to make it a little creamier than the last go round. But other than that, I pretty much made it like the original batch. While we offered chips, most everyone decided to eat this with the veggie dippers I included. Seriously, Sun Dried Tomato Hummus is awesome. Plus, you can whip it up in about 5 minutes. Yay! That’s a recipe I like to make. 🙂

Recipe Notes

NOTE:  If purchasing jarred sun-dried tomatoes, don’t drain the tomatoes or remove any excess oil from the tomatoes when adding to the hummus. You will want all the flavors to be included.

NOTE: I used sun-dried tomatoes with Italian herbs (in a package, not the kind in the jar). But either will work.
