This easy Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Hummus is a healthy addition to a sandwich or vegetable platter. It's made in minutes!
This Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Hummus is one of my favorite hummus recipes. It is quite versatile.
Sun-dried tomatoes and basil are a match made in heaven. If you love the combination as much as I do, check out my Vegan Sun-Dried Tomato Cheese Ball recipe, Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Chickpea Salad Sandwich, or my Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Pasta.
Both are made in 15 minutes or less, making them perfect for a weeknight.
I also have an easy 5 Ingredient Sun-Dried Tomato Soup recipe that comes together quickly.
- Garbanzo beans: Adds the texture, flavor, and creaminess hummus is known for.
- Tahini: Also a traditional hummus ingredient. Adds a nutty sesame flavor.
- Sun-dried tomatoes: Adds a sweet tart flavor. I used sun-dried tomatoes in oil, but you could use the dry ones as well. Just make sure to soak them in warm water first.
- Fresh basil: Adds a sweet and savory flavor with hints of anise.
- Lemon juice: Adds a bright tart flavor.
- Garlic: Adds a pungent flavor.
- Water: To thin it out.
- Olive oil: Adds creaminess.
- Salt: Enhances the other flavors.
