Useful tips for Sun-dried tomato basil hummus

Basically, this recipe is basic. But it photographed well, so we have several tips. 🙂

Buy sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil (we're gonna use it) at your local grocery store.

The oil has a great flavor (and smell, oy).

This is a perfect Vitamix recipe, but a food processor will work, too.

Just because it's a savory recipe doesn't mean you can't lick the spoon!

This sun dried tomato was not packed it oil. It's sole purpose is for garnish. Skip this unless you're fancy.
