Semi Dried Tomato Hummus - Vegan

Sunday I was in the mood for cooking.  You might remember I made this amazing Ultimate Chocolate Fudge Pie.  So, while I had the blender out I used up some of the chick peas I had sitting in the cupboard for the last few months.  Good thing they keep forever... Oops.

Here are the ingredients so you can have a go yourself.  I added some links so you can see how easy it is to buy these things from your local supermarket.  The dip I made is 100% vegan so it is up to you if you want to choose that way or not.  I am sure either way, it will be amazing.

400g chicks peas from a can
A bundle of semi dried tomatoes (or you can use roasted red peppers) from a jar
1 garlic clove
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tahini 

I basically threw everything in a blender.  It went around a few times.  It took me roughly 5mins to put this all together and now I have an epic garnish/dip for the rest of the week. 

If you are interested, the recipe I used as a guide can be found here.

It is up to you, how you want the consistency.  Add some more lemon juice or even some juice from the chick pea can if you like it a bit less dense.

What is your favorite flavor of hummus?  Do you ever make it yourself?
