Yes, I'm coming at you with another tomato recipe, and for good reason! They were irresistibly overflowing at the farmer's market last weekend. Tomato season isn’t quite over yet, and before the perfectly vine-ripened, ruby red beauties are gone, this Roasted Tomato Garlic and White Bean Hummus simply had to happen.
Remember to PIN THIS to save the recipe for later!
Reminiscent of classic pizza sauce, roasting peak-season tomatoes with garlic makes all the difference in this hummus. White beans were the base in lieu of traditionally used chickpeas because of their milder flavor to allow the tomatoes to fully shine. Fresh basil is a must, and fresh oregano added even a little more flare.
To prep the San Marzanos after you quarter them, use your thumb or a small spoon to gently remove the seeds. No need to obsess over getting every single one; removing the majority will keep the hummus from becoming too thin.
A little olive oil, dried oregano, s&p, and they're ready for the oven. So easy!
In just 20 minutes, the tomatoes will soften and begin to blister with a few light brown spots. That's perfect. You don't want them to turn to mush.
Now it's only a matter of whizzing everything together in your food processor or high-powered blender. I reserved the roasted cherry tomatoes for garnish, but you can always toss some in the processor if you have extra.
In addition to its taste and looks, the beauty of this hummus is you can make it 3-4 days in advance. Plus it makes a great pizza sauce on flatbread with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
