You may already be familiar with her blog, Plant Powered Kitchen. Today I am sharing a recipe from the book.  Red Lentil Hummus.  What a great idea, right? I love lentils and hummus, but I never thought to make hummus with lentils.

I have been on a huge sun dried tomato kick lately.  This sun dried tomato hummus recipe is one of my favorite things lately.  I have made it a couple times and I thought I would share it with all of you.  Regular hummus can get a bit boring.  So sometimes you have to mix it up a bit.  If you like hummus, you may also like my Roasted Jalapeno Hummus.

Pacific Foods recently sent me some samples of their new shelf stable hummus and I knew I wanted to make a veggie burger recipe with one of the flavors.  I used the roasted garlic hummus in this veggie burger recipe.  It is so yummy!  You may have heard me talk about Pacific Foods in my post about vegetable broth.

I do make my own hummus as well, but these shelf stable hummus packs are great for when you are on the go.  It could be a snack after sports, or at the beach or on a picnic.  I love that this hummus contains simple ingredients you would use in your own kitchen.  No funny stuff.  It comes in 3 delicious flavors.  Classic, roasted garlic, and roasted red pepper.   The reason I wanted to make a veggie burger with the hummus, is because I wanted to show you that hummus can be so much more than a spread.  It added great flavor to these veggie burgers.
