  • 1 1/2 cups Chickpeas soaked and cooked or rinsed and drained from a can
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1/3 of a cup Tahini Sesame Paste- buy it here
  • 10 - 12 fresh Basil leaves
  • 1/4 of a teaspoon Salt
  • 10 - 12 Cherry Tomatoes or Mini Roma Tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil optional
  • Fresh Cracked Pepper optional


  1. Place all chickpeas, garlic, tahini, basil, salt, and tomatoes in a food processor and pulse until smooth. If it is too thick, add water 1/2 of a tablespoon at a time. If too runny, add more chickpeas or tahini.
  2. Transfer tomato hummus to a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and fresh cracked pepper (optional).
  3. Serve hummus with crackers, pita bread, or veggies.
  4. Store tomato hummus in refrigerator for up to 4 days, covered.

Recipe Notes

1.) I find using small tomatoes like cherry and mini roma tomatoes add the most tomato flavor to this hummus. You can, however, also use any other type of tomato. Keep in mind that the larger the tomato in size the less of them you will need for this hummus.
