I have been so excited to share this recipe with you all! It is such a simple side dish which needs only half a dozen ingredients – as you may have realised by now, I love quick, easy and affordable recipes.I decided to try out a new type of hummus as my boyfriend isn’t much of a garlic fan, and therefore my plain hummus isn’t his favourite (to my disgust). Although, this one allows for the flavour of sun-dried tomato to shine, and may I add that he loved this one! Sun-dried tomato fans, this one is for you! In addition to tasting delicious the nutritional value in a bowl of hummus like this is great, as the chickpeas are acting as the source of protein and are full of nutrients.
Total time: 2 minutes
1 cup rinsed chickpeas
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup water
1 tbs tahini
1-2 cloves garlic (to taste)
Salt & pepper (to taste)
Throw all the ingredients into a blender of some sort and have at it! Yes, that’s it!
I love having hummus with veggie crisps, or even over a salad! It is a perfect addition to most plant-based meals just dolloped on the plate. I topped my hummus with black sesame and pumpkin seeds, with a few sun-dried tomatoes too (completely optional).
