Make your own Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus from scratch for a super healthy, creamy, dreamy, gluten-free, and vegan appetizer or snack!
Where are my others snackers at? Anyone else who would rather graze all day than sit down and have one big meal? That's me, 100%. Committing to a whole plate/dish is just way too limiting, am I right? That's why we have our own arsenal of healthy, homemade snacks from scratch including this Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus!
Not only is it incredibly easy and fast to make, but you can also serve it with almost anything. Crudité, crackers, chips, baguette slices - the possibilities are endless! And it's completely customizable, too!
Simple, Easy Ingredients
- Chickpeas - Also known as garbanzo beans, are the heart of hummus. High in protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, they are so healthy.
- Tahini - This sesame seed paste is also vital to hummus. Did you know that you can make your own from scratch in just minutes, too??
- Oil - Key to making your homemade hummus creamy and dreamy. We use and good extra virgin olive oil or vegetable or canola oil. Something neutral in flavor.
- Sun-Dried Tomatoes - Use your favorite kind or make your own!
- Garlic, Salt, Lemon - All for added flavor! No fresh garlic? No problem - you can of course use garlic powder, too.
No Tahini? No problem! When we've been out of our homemade tahini but still really want homemade hummus, we substitute Sesame Oil!
Dried or Canned Chickpeas? You can use either! If using dried, Alton Brown's method of slow cooking the chickpeas makes the absolutely creamiest hummus!
Minutes to Make
Honestly, the hardest part of this recipe will be cleaning your food processor!
Step 1: Add everything except the oil in the food processor or a blender.
Step 2: Blend until well combined and then slowly add the oil while food processor or blender is running to create a creamy dreamy homemade hummus!
Step 3: Drizzle on some more oil and top with some chopped sun-dried tomatoes and serve with your hummus vessel of choice!
Serve and enjoy!

Loving this hummus! Pinned!
Yum, this sounds so good. We are huge hummus fans around here, I have not tried it with sundries tomatoes though - I will have to rectify that 🙂

Oooh, this looks great! I'm also a serious hummus lover and love testing out new varieties. This is one I'll definitely give a go 🙂
Thanks so much, Tara! 😀
jane @ littlesugarsnaps
I love the flavour of hummus but always find the colour a little un-appetising. That's why i love this recipe as those tomatoes turn the colour a lovely shade. Plus I'm drooling just thinking of the flavour. Pinning for later
Thanks so much, Jane! Yes, some hummus just looks so.. blah. This one definitely is far from it! 😀
