Rawsome Sun-dried Tomato Hummus.

Hummus is great go-to snack and it is easy to make.

It is also an awesome way to eat extra veggies you might not want to eat plain: carrots, cucumber, bell peppers (of any color), tomatoes, jicama, celery. Or you can make a veggie wrap!


  • 2  cups garbanzo beans soaked overnight (you can use a 15 ounce can chickpeas drained and rinsed)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup Sun-dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil
  • 1/4 cup Tahini Paste
  • Juice from 1 lemon, plus 5 drops of lemon essential oil
  • 1 Tbsp tomato paste
  • Pinch of Himalanyan sea salt
  • Pinch of smoked paprika
  • Pinch of cumin
  • Ezekiel sprouted grain tortillas or other gluten free tortillas
  • Cucumbers, celery, carrots rinsed and chopped

Place garbanzo beans, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, tahini, tomato paste, some salt and smoked paprika in a food processor or blender and process until well combined and smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste. Add more oil, lemon juice or tomato paste if needed. Serve with a drizzle of oil and diced sun-dried tomatoes on the top.

Pre-heat broiler on low heat with the rack in the middle of the oven. Trim tortillas into wedge shapes. Place them on a baking sheet in a single layer and lightly spray with olive oil and then sprinkle with salt. Broil about 4-5 minutes until lightly browned and crispy. Sprinkle with some smoked paprika, or your favorite spices.

When tortillas are finished cooking, spread hummus on them, add veggies, wrap and enjoy!
