A bit salty, smoky, and umami. This Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus really tastes like nothing I had before. The addition of the sun-dried tomatoes to homemade hummus brings the hummus to the next level. And it only needs 7 basic ingredients!
Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus
Who doesn’t love hummus? At least I do. And when I love something, I like to expend its possibility, too, which explicitly shows through my chocolate brownies recipes. So here is another flavored hummus: Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus!
I actually have wanted to make this sun-dried tomato hummus for a long time since I saw different hummus recipes on Pinterest. I even bought the sun-dried tomatoes after the idea has come to my mind.
But you know, sometimes you got busy or worried about some stuff that you totally forget what you have planned to do. (High-five if you have this experience 🖐️ ) I seriously forgot it until the other day I open my fridge and saw my sun-dried tomatoes sitting there. Meanwhile, I want hummus. So I thought: Let’s do this. And here we go.
Only 7 Ingredients!
This Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus is basically a variation of the classic Hummus recipe. But you know, once there are different ingredients involved, there will be some changes in both the amount of each ingredient and taste.
But don’t panic because this sun-dried tomato hummus only requires the basic 7 ingredients: chickpeas, tahini, sun-dried tomatoes (for sure), salt, garlic, black pepper, and lemon juice (or lime juice).
There are optional ingredients provided for reference. You could try according to your taste. I personally love to add coriander powder and smoked paprika for the extra layer of flavor.
Super Easy & Quick to Make
It’s also super easy to make this sun-dried tomato hummus too. Basically, you just put all ingredients to a food processor to whiz up until smooth.
But one thing to keep in mind in terms of texture. If your food processor is not good at pureeing, then you probably want to use a blender instead.
At first, I used my Kitchenaid mini food processor and thought it should work, but it didn’t. So later I changed to use my newly beloved Magimix. I might have said that many times but that’s a fact I just couldn’t stop yelling. (And please don’t beat me.)
Shortly put, if you want to make this sun-dried tomato hummus as smooth as possible, use a great food processor or just grab your blender. You might need to add a bit more water to help it blend though.
Ok, back to our sun-dried tomato hummus. Actually, not much left to say because the flavor of it is a little bit hard to describe, but in a good way, though.
It’s a bit smoky, umami, and with the earthy tahini flavor. I like to enjoy this sun-dried tomato hummus with salty crackers. The crunchiness of the crackers creates a beautiful contrast with the creaminess of the hummus.
I think celery sticks would also go really well with it but it’s a shame that celery is really expensive recently in Taiwan. So, no celery stick at hand. (I really miss my celery sticks dipping into hummus.)
If you like to try different hummus flavor, give this sun-dried tomato hummus a try and let me know what do you think or how would you describe the taste of it (I really had a hard time figuring out the right words for that ).

- 3 sun-dried tomatoes 風乾蕃茄, I use 2 dried + 1 in oil cus I don't want it too oily

- 2-3 Tbsp water 水
- salt 鹽, to taste 適量
- ground black pepper 黑胡椒粉, to taste 適量
