Sun-dried Tomato Hummus
6-8 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
1 T. tahini
juice of 1 lemon
4 T. extra virgin olive oil
salt — to taste
fresh ground pepper — to taste
cayenne pepper or crushed red chilies (optional)
Combine everything in a food processor and process until smooth, adjusting the oil to create consistency that you like. Add salt and pepper to taste and hot pepper if you like things a little spicy.
Good served with toasted pita bread or as a dip with corn chips. Also really good as a sandwich spread.
