Garlic and Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

I found this number in my saved recipes to try this weekend when I discovered I had no Kalmata olives for our old stand by – Mediteranean Hummus! I also ended up using a bit of the oil that the tomatoes were packed in for some liquid in the hummus. Definitely yummy and even hubby enjoyed it and he doesn’t like any kind of tomatoes!


5 servings (serving size: 1/4 cup hummus and 4 pita wedges)


  • 1/4  cup  water
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomato halves
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 2  garlic cloves
  • 1  (15-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained


Combine water, tomato, salt, pepper, garlic, and beans in a food processor, and process until smooth. Serve with pita wedges.
