Sun-dried tomato hummus

I love hummus. It’s so easy to make your own and then you are able to avoid refined canola and soy oils. All you need is a food processor or a high-speed blender and you have a healthy snack. I like to make individual portion sizes that can be put into convenient to-go containers. No excuses to eat healthy now!
