This dried tomato hummus is just a quick idea how to spice up your favorite hummus recipe. Just add some tomatoes and fresh basil to the chickpeas and tahini to get an amazing and rich flavor. It’s a perfect dip for healthy snacking or to make a morning toast. Or just add a large tablespoon to your salad for a thick and filling dressing. With hummus you just can’t go wrong.
I have never met anybody, who doesn’t love hummus. I guess it’s because hummus is the best food ever, right? I love to make a big portion of hummus every week, so I can snack on it anytime throughout the week. Just put it in a big jar and you will always have something to grab when you feel hungry. And don’t tell me there is anything better than dipping carrot sticks or crackers in a big bowl of hummus while watching some stupid series! I know it’s lame, but such things make me so happy 🙂
