Sun Dried Hummus


I love hummus! Spread it on bread top with some sprouts and I’m one happy lady. It is great as a snack too. This one is pretty light on the fat – and heavy on flavor!

1 (15.5 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 c chopped sun-dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)
4 cloves garlic
1/4 c fresh basil leaves
1/4 cgrated Parmesan cheese
2 TBSP olive oil
3/4 – 1 c water
salt and pepper to taste

Grind the garbanzo beans, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, basil, and Parmesan cheese together in a food processor or blender.

Add about 1/4 c water; grind another 15 seconds. Pour in enough additional reserved liquid, a small amount at a time, and grind; repeat until the consistency is like chunky peanut butter.

Pour in the olive oil; grind for an additional 15 seconds. Season with salt and pepper.

Serves 4 – 6.
