How handy that hummus has become a comfort food in this home! It’s simple to make, it stores well for several days, travels wonderfully, and is so adaptable to different seasonings. It could become a regular stand-by in your kitchen too.
If you have tried cooking with tomato powder, you already know how beautifully it captures the flavor of summer tomatoes, so why not a hummus that includes tomato powder? In the dead of winter when summer seems a far off dream, you can serve up this rose-colored warm-to-hot hummus to dispel the gloom.
Our tomato powder came from grinding up our dehydrated garden tomatoes. You may want to save some of your own garden tomatoes for this. See how easy it is to make yourself (here). Of course, you could find tomato powder for sale online. Once you get the hang of using it, you will not want to run out!
The following recipe makes a smooth, creamy hummus. If you like more texture, reserve 1 cup of the cooked beans. Crush them with a fork and add to the finished hummus. Either way, you get a super hummus!
Refrigerate leftovers in a container with a tight-fitting lid. It will keep nicely for about 4 days.
