Sun Dried Tomato Basil Hummus


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.
