Sun Dried Tomato Hummus Recipe

Sun Dried Tomato Hummus has to be one of my all-time favorite hummus recipes to make as an appetizer when entertaining. Hummus is so simple to make, even up to a few days before serving, and is always a crowd-pleaser.

Making it perfect for every thing from packing in lunch boxes, after school snacks, picnics, tailgating, to showers. And that’s why I’m so excited to share my Sun Dried Tomato Hummus recipe today for Aggie’s Baby Shower.




Aggie has to be one of the sweetest people I’ve ever had the opportunity to know. Kind, thoughtful, funny, and would do anything in the world for you. As my grandmother would have said, “she’s good people.”

Aggie shares healthy, delicious recipes on her blog, Aggie’s Kitchen. I promise, you’ll find so many dishes there you just “have” to make!

Which brings me back to this sun dried tomato hummus recipe. I just know this is a recipe if Aggie were in my home, she’d appreciate and enjoy. Healthy, delicious, and full of flavor. You can serve it with pita bread, pita chips, or an array of cut up vegetables. Heavens, you can also use it as a sandwich spread if you like. And you’ll want to, believe me. This stuff is to die for!

So, let me show you how I make it.

My sun dried tomato hummus begins with just a few simple ingredients, lemon juice, tahini, olive oil, garlic, cumin, salt, chickpeas, and of course, good sun dried tomatoes.

You’ll want to use a good blender, like this Blendtec, or food processor to make the smoothest and creamiest hummus recipe. You’ll want to add your ingredients in a certain order to also get the creamiest hummus. The order I follow is listed in the instructions portion of the recipe below.

And once it is finished, just top it with additional sun dried tomatoes and a bit of the oil from the tomatoes for the perfect ending touch.

    We are positively ADDICTED to a certain big-name-brand’s spicy 3 pepper hummus. It’s expensive! Do you have any tweaks that would create that spicy taste? I’ve been unsuccessful getting homemade hummus creamy, so I’m definitely going to try your method.

    Robyn, she really is the sweetest! I love this hummus recipe especially because I love sundried tomatoes!! Thank you so much for joining in with us!

    You hit the nail on the head…Aggie is definitely “good people”. This hummus sounds fantastic. I’ll bet it would be wonderful tucked inside of a vegetarian salad wrap.

    You touched my heart sweet Robyn, thank you!! I love your Grandma’s words…that’s how I like to describe people I meet and love, thank you with all my heart.

    And this hummus. Um, yes please! Ironically I have all those ingredients in my house, surprise surprise! I would be hanging out by this bowl at my baby shower that’s for sure. :)

    This is an easy and delicious spread. I put it on my husband’s sandwich for lunch, and he gave it the thumbs up. Thanks!

    Flavor was really good, but this didn’t work in my standard KitchenAid blender. Not enough to really get the ingredients moving so I had to transfer to my food processor. Had to add some water and more oil to get the texture right.
