This Sun Dried Tomato Red Pepper Hummus was originally published January 2015. I've re-tested and re-photographed the recipe for you!
I was about to apologize for the iPhone pictures of this healthy hummus. That is, if you happened to have been around in 2015 following this blog. Wow! Has it really been that long? It feels like yesterday that I started building my little area of the internet world.
I've thought about it and I'm not going to apologize for old recipe pictures anymore. Here's why... we all have to start somewhere. That means we're going to fail, learn, fail, learn. Get it? That's the only way we grow, reach our goals and do great things.
Had I not started this blog with ugly iPhone pictures, it would not be what it is today and I wouldn't have my website and nutrition business (which I LOVE and adore). The point is, we all have to start somewhere and the path won't always be a straight line and clear.
Why am I telling you this? Because way too many women think think they need to be perfect to reach their weight loss goals. I see it everyday in my practice. It keeps them stuck in a cycle of always starting over. Resilience is the key to your success. That and a few lighter recipes which you'll find plenty of on this website including this....
Sun Dried Tomato Red Pepper Hummus
Ever since I made that no bean hummus, I've been obsessed with making zucchini based dips and marinades for a lighter, veggie packed hummus or cooking protein in.
I'm not in any way telling you to omit beans. They're high fiber and a wonderful source of nutrients. Not to mention fiber is key for weight loss. So many misconception when it comes to carbs which I talk about in my free online training.
One of my goals is to alway eat more veggies. This hummus is made from red peppers, zucchini and sun dried tomatoes. Three veggies in one, delicious, creamy and slightly hummus coming right up!
What You Need
- Red Pepper
- Sun Dried Tomatoes

How to make healthy hummus
Wash, clean, cut and discard the seeds of the red pepper and peel the zucchini. Roughly chop both and toss in a blender or food processor. You can leave the skin on the zucchini if you like. More good fiber in that skin, but it's totally up to you!
Measure and toss the remaining ingredients into the blender. Blend until smooth and enjoy!
How to eat this low carb hummus
There'e soooo many options when it comes to hummus. While you can enjoy it with raw veggies, I encourage you to think beyond that. Hummus can be used as a salad dressing, protein marinade like this hummus chicken or even as a low carb pasta sauce.
