Recipe Corner: Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

This oldie-but-goodie dates back the early 2000s. The Sun-dried tomato hummus from Max's Grille is served with house-made breadsticks and remains a bread-basket staple to this day. The recipe hasn't  change a bit and still remains to be a fan favorite. If time permits, make the dip a few hours in advance, or even better, the night before, to allow the flavors to develop and meld. 


  • 1 15 ounce canned chickpeas, drained
  • 3 tablespoons of roasted garlic 
  • 1/3 cup loosely packed Italian parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil 
  • 3 tablespoons (about 6 small pieces) marinated     sundried tomatoes 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt 
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment, process all ingredients except olive oil until smooth. With motor running, drizzle olive oil in slowly through feed tube until mixture is smooth.

Makes about 1 3/4 cups.

Serve with crackers, carrot sticks, celery, cucumbers or any vegetable of your liking.
