Sundried Tomato and Pesto Hummus
I think I'm obsessed with hummus, although I have to ask myself, "How could I not be?" It's fresh-tasting, it's healthy, and it's super easy and inexpensive to whip up. I think maybe I should just write a hummus cookbook.
Here's the next one I tried and loved. Of course the sundried tomatoes speak for themselves, and the pesto is a very nice touch.

Sundried Tom Hummus

Sundried Tomato and Pesto Hummus

1 can (15oz) garbanzo beans
3 tbsp oil from sundried tomatoes
2 tsp pesto
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp tahini
2 cloves garlic, minced
7 sundried tomatoes, minced

Combine beans, oil, pesto, lemon juice, tahini, and garlic. I use a potato masher, but feel free to use a food processor and blend together well. Stir in tomatoes, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Allow to chill for an hour or so, and serve.

Hello Sun Dried Tomato and Pesto Hummus! (just doesn't have the same ring as "Hello Harry & David" but it'll do nicely.)

I'll expect some in the shoebox....

As you know, fiber, I'm a fellow hummus addict. This sounds delicious and I'll definitely give it a try. And thanks for visiting my blog...

I just made this. YUM! Only changed I made were as follows...
I didn't have any lemons on hand, so I used seasoned rice vinegar in place of the lemon juice.
I added 1/2 tsp. of cayenne instead of black pepper.
