Sun Dried Tomato Basil Hummus | Cooking Classy

You can never have too many hummus recipes, right? This is the fifth I’ve shared but there are still more I can’t wait to try. Hummus is so easy to make and homemade is so much better than store bought. And not only is a hummus a great dip but it makes for a great spread for your favorite sandwiches and wraps. I’m sure this could work wonders to a grilled veggie wrap along with some feta.

You will love all the Mediterranean flavors in this Sun Dried Tomato Basil Hummus, it is simply addictive! This is something that will definitely add some excitement to the same old boring lunches we all keep having every day. Lunch is something I never put a lot of effort into but homemade hummus adds some serious pizzaz to any lunch.

This is a hummus recipe I will make time and time again. The way the flavor of the sun dried tomatoes shines through along with the freshness of the basil is irresistible!
