Sun Dried Tomato Hummus

I’m a dipper. It’s true. I like to dip things. It’s just part of who I am and come on let’s be honest it’s just fun. Guacamole and hummus are two of my favorites (not that I’d turn down queso, ever). Do you know that hummus is easier to make than guacamole? It is. My KitchenAid food processor does all the work for me. No chopping, no mincing. I just chuck all the ingredients into my food processor and press the button. Besides being obviously good for you, making it at home means you can make it just the way you like it. Thick or creamy. Heavy on the lemon juice. All up to you.


You are the boss. The hummus boss. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. When you’ve got it just the way you like it, serve it up with a little extra drizzle of the chile infused olive oil (if you don’t like the extra heat just use regular extra virgin olive oil) and a few chopped up sun dried tomatoes on top for garnish and a little texture.


Now where are the pita chips?

    Paula, should I drain the oil from the tomatoes before adding them?

    Paula, should the tomatoes be drained first?

      Hi Patty, you can drain them but reserve the olive oil. If you find it’s too thick for your liking, add in the olive oil from the sun-dried tomatoes a little at a time until it’s just the way you like it.
