oil-free sun-dried tomato hummus recipe

If you’re a hummus fan, but want to mix things up a bit, try this Sundried-tomato hummus recipe from Vegan Street.

You so often see hummus topped with a moat of vegetable oil. But it doesn’t have to be.

It can be as smooth as you like and it has enough flavour and rich-ness, that oil doesn’t really add anything. Except extra calories from fat that you don’t need.

Be sure to use sun-dried tomatoes without any added oil to keep this recipe oil-free.


  • chickpeas
  • sun-dried tomatoes
  • tahini
  • fresh lemon juice
  • aquafaba (liquid from canned/cooked chickpeas) or water
  • spices: cumin, cayenee pepper, crushed garlic

Hummus can be enjoyed in many ways. Use it as a dip, sandwich spread, or mixed in with salad.

To prepare it, either a blender or food processor work well.

Blend it as creamy, or leave it as chunky as you like.

Aquafaba is a great way to add extra flavour and liquid to recipes.

Plus you’re avoiding pouring it down the drain. So next time you use a can of beans, save the liquid and see if you can find a way to add it to a recipe.

This recipe is just one example.
