Roasted Tomato Hummus
You can make this delicious Roasted Tomato Hummus with homemade Slow Roasted Tomatoes or sun-dried tomatoes from a jar, and this tasty hummus is delicious!
This Roasted Tomato Hummus Recipe is a little bit of a public service announcement for anyone who has Roma or San Marzano tomatoes in the garden; this is prime time to be making Slow Roasted Tomatoes, those delicious little morsels of roasted tomato that capture the flavors of summer. I’ve been making them every summer for quite a few years now, and a few years ago when I had some thawed in the fridge I used them to come up with this recipe for Slow Roasted Tomato Hummus, which is now one of my favorites!
BUT If you don’t have slow roasted tomatoes, just make this recipe into Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus using sun-dried tomatoes from a jar; just add a little water and process to soften the dried tomatoes.
What ingredients do you need for this recipe?
- Slow Roasted Tomatoes or sun-dried tomatoes and a little water
- canned garbanzo beans (also called chickpeas)
- garlic puree or Minced Garlic (affiliate link)
- Tahini Sauce (affiliate link)
- fresh-squeezed lemon juice, I used my fresh-frozen lemon juice
- Olive Oil (affiliate link), plus more for drizzling on finished hummus if desired
- sea salt, or to taste
- Sumac (affiliate link) for sprinkling on finished hummus, optional
What Pita Bread would I use?
I first served this with Lavash that I brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with Sumac and then toasted in a toaster oven for a few minutes, but low-carb pita bread is what I’d use now. My photos below were for a double batch of hummus, and this is so good you might want to double it as well when you make it.
How to Make Roasted Tomato Hummus:
(Scroll down for complete recipe with nutritional information.)
- Rinse the canned garbanzo beans with cold water and let them drain well.
- These are the slow roasted tomatoes after they’ve been frozen and thawed; remember I’m making a double batch of hummus here!
- If you don’t have slow roasted tomatoes, rinse the oil from sun-dried tomatoes and add a little water.
- Puree the slow roasted tomatoes (or sun-dried tomatoes plus a little water) with the garlic until they are mostly smooth.
- Add drained garbanzos to the tomatoes and process until the beans are pureed and the mixture is well combined.
- Then add tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, and water and process until the mixture is smooth. (I might add part of the water, process, and then decide if it needs more water.)
- I brushed Lavash with olive oil and sprinkled with Sumac, then toasted it just until the bread was firm.
- Then I cut the bread into squares to use to dip the hummus.
- You can also eat this with low-carb pita bread, celery, carrot sticks, or red pepper strips.
More Delicious Hummus Variations:
- 1/2 cup slow roasted tomatoes (or use scant 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes and a little water)
- 1 can (15.5 oz.) garbanzo beans (also called chickpeas)
- 2 T garlic puree (or less if you’re not a huge garlic fan)
- 1/4 cup tahini sauce
- 3 T fresh lemon juice (see notes)
- 2 T olive oil, plus more for drizzling on finished hummus if desired
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt, or to taste
- Optional: Sumac for sprinkling on finished hummus
- Drain garbanzo beans into colander, then rinse well with cold water until no more foam appears.
- Leave beans in colander to continue draining.
- In bowl of food processor fitted with steel blade, place slow roasted tomatoes (or rinsed sun-dried tomatoes) and garlic.
- Process about 30 seconds, or slightly longer for sun-dried tomatoes.
- Add drained beans, process about 1-2 minutes, until beans and tomatoes are completely blended together.
- Add Tahini Sauce (affiliate link), 2 T lemon juice, olive oil, and half the water and process 30 seconds to one minute more, until all ingredients are well blended.
- Check the thickness and see if you want to use the other 2 tablespoons of water.
- Taste to decide whether to add more lemon juice and salt, add if desired and process a few seconds more.
- This will keep in the refrigerator for several weeks if it’s in a container with a tight lid.
- Sprinkle finished hummus with Sumac (affiliate link) if desired.
- Serve with pita bread, lavash, crackers, celery sticks, carrots, or red pepper strips.
You will need a food processor to make this successfully. There are many good brands, but I love my Cuisinart Food Processor DLC 10. (affiliate link) You might start with 2 T of lemon juice and taste to see if you want to add more.Nutritional information is based on 1/4 cup serving size, and doesn't include lavash or pita bread.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Roasted Tomato Hummus is not suitable for low-carb diets except in very small amounts, but beans are acceptable for all phases of the original South Beach Diet, and they’re great for other low-glycemic diets as well. This is great with low-carb pita bread if you’d like to keep the carbs lower.
