  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, loosely chopped


  • Add all of the ingredients, except the basil, to a food processor. On medium speed, blend for 1-2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the food processor's bowl and blend for another 2 minutes. You will want a very smooth consistency. 
  • Next, add the chopped basil and pulse until the basil is mixed well into the hummus.


One serving is equal to 1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons.
