Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Hummus!

It’s been awhile since I have done a new recipe!  As you know I bought a Vitamix a few weeks ago and I can safely say that I use it almost every day!  Sometimes 2-3 times a day! Since buying the Vitamix I don’t think that I will ever buy store bought almond milk or hummus again!

The basil in our garden has been amazing!  Actually all of the herbs are doing quite well!!

I whipped this up last week in the Vitamix!  If you don’t have one a food processor is just fine!

My apologies that my pictures really aren’t the best but I am not a photographer!  I love to eat and cook and taking pictures of my food isn’t something I do so well but I promise you that this is delicious!

Do you buy hummus or make it at home?

  1. Tasty! I made white bean basil hummus on Saturday. Love adding fresh herbs to homemade hummus. Great idea to add straight up sesame seeds instead of tahini!

  2. I always buy hummus because I don’t currently have a food processor. It’s probably for the best because I could eat it all day long. This looks delicious!
