Sun Dried Tomato Basil Hummus

Let’s get one thing straight here.  Hummus could be one of the worlds most unbelievable foods.  I am actually going to go as far as saying, that I blame hummus for my vegetarian muffin top.  It is a healthy layer of chub, so I don’t care. It just means that I am healthy gal that has an overwhelming love for a garbanzo bean…or is it a chickpea?  Is there even a difference?  Ok, now I think I am saying one of them wrong.  I guess you can call it either or.

We all know that plain hummus is great, but sun dried tomato hummus is better! If you love the deep rich flavor of a sun dried tomato and basil, this will be a perfect go to snack.   Hummus is such a healthy versatile food, and you can add just about anything to it to make it is perfect snack.  It is also a great staple snack, because it keeps you full for a long time.  There are even recipes for chocolate hummus, you know if breakfast, lunch, and dinner hummus is not good enough, now we need a dessert one too.  (we will definitely have that recipe later on)…

Enjoy your new addiction!
