Sun-dried tomato hummus is a simple hummus recipe that takes only 10 minutes to make. It's packed with delicious sun-dried tomato flavor. If you are following a plant-based and gluten-free diet, this is a recipe for you.
When I think of vegan food my first thought is always hummus and/or falafel. I'm a big fan of both, but if I have to choose only one, hummus is definitely my favorite one. Hummus is so versatile and can be made with so many different flavors. This is the reason why I'm never getting tired of hummus. For example, I'm dipping veggies in hummus, tossing over pasta, as spread on sandwiches, etc. This particular recipe has a delicious flavor, creamy texture, and is one of the favorite hummus recipes of mine.
INGREDIENTS IN A SUN-DRIED TOMATO HUMMUS
- Chickpeas (garbanzo beans): Canned or dried. I used canned for this recipe. If you go with dried chickpeas, make sure to soak them overnight before cooking. Using dried chickpeas is cheaper but takes longer to make hummus.
- Garlic: Use fresh garlic for the flavor. However, if you don't have fresh garlic at home garlic powder will do fine. But I recommend using fresh garlic for this recipe.
- Lemon juice: Lemon juice is balancing the flavor.
- Olive oil: Oil is helping bind hummus together.
- Sun-dried tomatoes: This is the key ingredient in this recipe.
- Tahini: Tahini is sesame seed paste. Used for the delicious sesame taste.
- Aquafaba: To make it creamy and fluffy. Aquafaba is the liquid leftover from cooked chickpeas.
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS RECIPE PERFECTLY
- Take the time to peel the chickpeas. This step is necessary for a creamy hummus. The easiest way to do this is to place chickpeas in a bowl of water and use your hands to pinch each bean to slip off the skin.
- Use fresh garlic for more flavor.
- Adjust the thickness adding more or less chickpea liquid.
