Sun-Dried Tomato Cilantro Hummus

Sun dried tomato cilantro hummusThis is one of those recipes that I feel proud to pass around the office or bring to a family get together. I'm not saying that it's the ultimate, most perfect, absolutely divine, everybody-always-loves-it-as-much-as-me, final say in hummus recipes. That would just be silly. But I will say that this hummus is my favorite. It sort of tastes like pizza.Sundried tomato hummusOh no! I ruined it for you didn't I? Well listen up pizza haters: Try this. Even if you don't like pizza (weirdos!). Even if you don't like hummus (double weirdos!!). It's super easy to throw together, is pretty healthy for you, and tastes wonderful. Unless you're a weirdo, which I feel like I've already covered. Ingredients for the perfect hummusSun-Dried Tomato Cilantro Hummus, makes about 3 cups

1 can chickpeas
1/3 cup sun-dried tomato spread (found mine in the produce section)
2 tablespoon tahini paste
1/4 cup fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon salt + more to taste
1/3 cup olive oil
pepper and red pepper to taste How to make hummusFirst you need to rinse and remove the skins from the chickpeas. Most canned chickpeas still have the skins on them. There may be a brand out there that doesn't. But better safe than sorry. If you've never removed the skins you can see me doing this here

Now place the first five ingredients in your food processor and blend until combined. Now slowly drizzle in the olive oil as the food processor is on low. If your processor doesn't allow for this then try adding the oil in three steps, blending in between. Try it and add pepper, salt and red pepper to taste. If you have a lemon, squeeze it over just before serving.Best hummus recipeI like to serve hummus with cucumbers and crackers. Other great options include: carrot sticks, celery, pita, tiny toast (totally a thing) or beef jerky (jk, weird).Spicy tomato hummus recipeEnjoy this guys! After all, it's almost pizza hummus. 🙂 xo.

  • Sounds good. 🙂 I’m going to try it.

    P.S. You have a typo. It should be “tastes like pizza” not “taste like pizza.

    P.S.S. You have other grammatical errors as well. I think you need Strunk & White. I tell you this because I believe your writing has potential.

  • This idea is really great for a hot summer party with friends!

  • Oh wow, that looks so good! Hummus that tastes anything like pizza sounds like a true winner for me. I can’t wait to try it out.

  • Oh, I also didn’t have sun-dried tomato spread, so I just soaked some sun-dried tomatoes in hot water and used them like that.

  • I made this with basil instead of cilantro because I just love basil. I also added some garlic. We had it with salad and it was amazing.

  • I have never tried to make my own hummus…I have to make it one of these days! This recipe looks and sounds delicious!!!

  • Beverly-It just helps the hummus blend better. It will become more creamy than it would if you leave the skins on. There’s nothing wrong with leaving the skins on, they are perfectly edible. This is just how I prefer to make hummus. 🙂

  • thank you for this! consider it made and devoured. my husband is going to love this.

  • You’ve got me on a hummus kick so clearly I’ll need to try this one next! Yum!
    PS who doesn’t like pizza?

  • Oh my, the cilantro and sun dried tomato combo is perfect and dipping with cucumbers sounds fresh and healthy. Thanks for the recipe!

  • I’ve made hummus pizza before! Super easy. I cut pita in half and cover it with hummus and top it with feta, spinach, tomato, onion.. anything really. Then bake. Super delicious. I’ll have to try this hummus on my hummus pizza!

  • This looks delicious! Gimme, now! I definitely have to try this sometime, it looks too good to be true. Love this.

  • Why remove the skins from the chickpeas? I always use them as is and my hummus comes out pretty good, I think. Is there something bad about the skins?
