Sun-dried Tomato Dip

I adore sun-dried tomatoes. The flavor is so outstanding and intense and any chance I get to use them, I love it. I saw a recipe for Sun-dried tomato dip in Veganomicon and I instantly bookmarked it.

This recipe is quite different than the original version, but I think you'll find it to be quite tasty. It literally took me 10 minutes to throw it together, and all of the ingredients are readily stocked in any full pantry. Guess what that means?? You've got an instant dip to throw together when unexpected guests arrive. Who doesn't love that??

Sun-dried Tomato Dip

Sun-dried Tomato Dip
A variation of Veganomicon's version

1/2 c slivered or sliced almonds
1/2 c oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 c oil from tomatoes
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 c canned navy beans (or other white beans)

In food processor, process almonds until they are ground to a powder. Add tomatoes and process until chopped. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth. Serve and enjoy!

Lina - thanks!! It's very tasty.

Evinrude - they are Wasa Multigrain crackers. I absolutely adore them. Low in fat and calories and high in fiber. Delicious.
