I eat a lot of hummus! I usually make a bowl of hummus on the weekend and munch on it with fresh veggies throughout the week (so I won’t grab chips or other unhealthy snacks). Today I was feeling like I needed some fresh raw veggies and there was no hummus in the refrigerator 😦 So, I started poking around and decided to make a new dip with what I had on hand. Here is what I ended up with, a red bean, sun-dried tomato dip that is super yummy and healthy.
10 sun-dried tomatoes (soak them in boiling water for about 10 minutes)
2 cups of red beans (I had soaked and cooked a big batch of dried beans over the weekend and had these ready to go)
1-2 Tbsp minced garlic
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 of a large red onion
1 Tbsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
drizzle of olive oil (about 1 Tbsp)
Put all ingredients into food processor and process 1-2 minutes or until desired consistency. Serve with fresh veggies or try it as a spread on your favorite veggie sandwich……Yum!
