Sun-dried Tomato + Basil Hummus

Sun-dried Tomato + Basil Hummus

A bit of a tasty Mediterranean twist on plain hummus – with semi-sundried tomatoes and basil.

Ingredients (makes about 2 cups)

1 1/2 cups (250g) cooked chickpeas
1/3 cup warm filtered water (or chickpea liquid/aquafaba for creamier results)
25g oil-free semi-dried tomatoes
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp tahini
2 cloves garlic
5 or 6 large leaves basil (about 5cm long)
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
salt and black pepper to taste
smoked paprika powder and sprig fresh basil (to serve – optional)



Soak the sundried tomatoes in the water/aquafaba for at least 30 minutes. Add all other ingredients then blend in a high powered blender until smooth. Garnish with paprika and basil. Enjoy
