Ingredients

  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/3 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes (the oil-packed kind)
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 tablespoon oil from sun dried tomatoes
  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne, or more to taste (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil

Instructions

  • Pulse garlic in food processor until minced.
  • Add sun dried tomatoes, tahini, and oil from tomatoes to garlic. Process until tomatoes are minced.
  • Drain chickpeas in a strainer, reserving liquid from can (set aside). Rinse chickpeas with water.
  • Add chickpeas, lemon juice, salt, and cayenne to food processor. Blend until smooth. (If hummus is too thick to blend, add a few tablespoons of the reserved chickpea liquid, one tablespoon at a time, to thin.)
  • Place basil in food processor; pulse until it's minced and blended in. Season hummus to taste with additional salt, if necessary.
  • Serve hummus with crackers, pita bread or pita chips, and fresh veggies. Enjoy!
