Homestyle Sun-dried Tomato and Herb Hummus – ★★★★★

Image

We love hummus and find our homestyle recipe to be better then the store bought stuff. This recipe isn’t exactly creamy because it is hand mixed, and that is one of the things we love most about it. Every bite is different with chunks of tomato, chickpea and garlic. I’m seriously about to go break some out of the fridge just talking about it. It’s that good! We like to make it not only for ourselves but as an appetizer for when we have friends/family over. Definitely a crowd pleaser! Perry always gives five stars and here is why:

“This hummus is unique in that it’s not what you would expect hummus to be.. I was used to what Kelsey calls “liquid hummus” from the store before she introduced me to this recipe. I’m hooked and am now appalled by store bought hummus. I like this recipe because it is thick, hearty and versatile. Each batch never tastes the same because Kelsey likes to experiment with herbs. That being said we’ve never had a bad batch. We usually eat this hummus with triscuits making it a delicious protein/fiber snack.”
