How to Make Hummus

The most loved hummus around these parts is sun-dried tomato hummus. The sun-dried tomatoes lend such a lovely and deep flavour, making it a nice dish to bring along to a potluck, or to use for simple lunches and snacks.

  • 2 cups soaked, cooked chickpeas (head over here for info on how to soak, cook and freeze dried chick peas)
  • 6 sun-dried tomatoes (we prefer rehydrated dry, rather than in canola or another vegetable oil)
  • 2 cloves garlic (this is mild enough for our kiddos – adjust to your family’s preference)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (much more shown in the photo!)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce



1. Put all of the liquid ingredients into your blender or food-processor, followed by the dry ingredients, ending with the chick peas.

2. Blend the ingredients together until desired consistency is reached.

3. If desired, swirl some extra virgin olive oil in a dish with the hummus, and enjoy! Any extra hummus can be stored in the fridge for short term eating or frozen for use later on.

  1. Thanks for sharing on Thank Goodness it’s Monday. I have not been happy with the hummus recipes I have tried, so I will have to give this one a whirl. The tomatoes might just be the ingredient to win me over!

    1. I feel the same about a lot of hummus recipes, Janet. I have always loved this one, though. It has been our go-to recipe for about 10 years! Also, there is a Lebanese restaurant near our home and they have the BEST hummus in sun-dried tomato, red pepper or plain.

      A lot of recipes call for tahini, and we just simply don’t have tahini or make it, so I skip it. You might find there is a taste difference because of that…

      Hope you enjoy it!
