[Oil Free] Sun Dried Tomato Basil Hummus

Jump to Recipe

Finger lickin’ good – yep that is what this sun dried tomato basil hummus is!   Yes, my friends I just equated this hummus with that popular US fast food chain slogan. If you don’t know it – Google it.

Anyways – why did I just utter that?

Because literally every time I make this, I take my finger around the edge of the dish and lick it clean.

No shame!

Finger Lickin’ Good Sun Dried Tomato Basil Hummus

So what makes this sun dried tomato basil hummus so good? FLAVOR.

And all oil – free.

Have you tried sun dried tomatoes?

Go get some now. Seriously! Why are you still reading this, go to the store or at least add them on your shopping list!

Sun dried tomatoes take that best part of the tomato – the sweetness – and then it is dried like a raisin. It produces this chewy bit of savory goodness that can’t be beat!

Looking to add flavor to your Italian, Mediterranean food? Just add sun dried tomatoes they are top notch! And they make this sun dried tomato basil hummus top notch. And they also make these other recipes outstanding:

Sun-Dried Artichoke Spaghetti Squash

Grilled Stuffed Port0bella Mushrooms

I like these from Bella Sun Luci –but that is just brand my West Michigan Meijer store stocks. I am sure there are other brands. But the nice thing about this brand is that they come julienned – saves some time chopping!

Easy to Make Hummus

This hummus is so easy to make which makes it another reason to love. A few ingredients, a food processor and bam you have a delicious dip! Ready for lunches, parties, wraps, sandwiches and more.

Could adding vegan, plant based flavor get any easier? I think not!   Except if you were to make our original oil-free hummus recipe. Cause’ that is super easy too.   And finger lickin’ good.

So let’s get to it. And if you make this, we would love to know! Tag @badtothebowl on social.

      I have been trying different oil free hummus recipes and this one was great! I did use a little less tahini (to save on calories) and only 1 tsp of the basil but it turned out perfect, thank you!
