Sun-dried Tomato & Basil Hummus

by Jill Dalton

I am always looking for exciting new flavors for hummus and this is one of them. The sun-dried tomatoes and basil give this hummus a major punch of flavor. It is great as a veggie dip, as a spread for sandwiches or as a topping for baked potatoes.

Jill, I just made this and it is SO delicious!!!
I made a couple of changes:
– Since I am allergic to sesame, I subbed 2 T. of sunflower butter (Oskri brand which is only sunflower seeds and is organic also).
– Added a small spoonful of chickpea miso. Have others in our home who are not salt free yet. It wasn’t enough to make it have a salty taste exactly, but it made more familiar to the salt users.
– I also subbed white beans for one of the cans of garbs since one can is all I had.

My goal is to try every single recipe of yours!

Hi – is there a substitute for Tahini? I’m following Dr Esselstyns reverse heart disease plan as I have high blood pressure and I don’t think tahini is allowed…. Sadly!!!

I’m afraid all of the substitutes would be nuts or seeds and if I am correct, those are not allowed in Esselsyn’s plan. Sorry

jill and Penny. I made hummus this weekend minus the tahanni. It turned out pretty good. I used lots of garlic. I am still tweaking the recipe.

I see this makes 8 servings but what kind? 8 servings of 2 tbsp each? I track macros and need to know. Thank you!
