It is DAY 11 of "I LOVE Vitamix" month and the Vitamix Giveaway is going off like a cracker. We have had almost 15,000 hits to this giveaway in the last week! Pretty incredible.

Here is Vitamix Recipe #11: Raw Vegan Sun Dried Tomato & Red Pepper No Bean Hummus. I love this recipe because it is ridiculously quick and easy, and is loaded with flavour. You will need a high speed blender in order to get a really smooth creamy consistency. However, if you don't have a Vitamix you can make this dip in a food processor. You will have a more rustic consistency but the flavour is excellent.

I love "no bean" hummus recipes because I am a blood type A and have difficulty digesting chickpeas. Did anyone say "excessive flatulence?" So this no bean hummus dip is a fantastic socially acceptable option for me! If you want a quick easy conventional hummus recipe check out my 5 minute rescue hummus which is delicious! If you want some other amazing dip recipes check out the cashew dip, green pea chutney, and the sun dried tomato and macadamia pesto.

I really love the combination of sun dried tomatos and red bell peppers. There is a sweetness and tanginess that lends itself really well to this raw vegan dip. This dip tastes amazing without the spices. If you are feeding this to children you will want to leave them out.

This hummus is fantastic spread on crackers or sandwiches or as a dip for raw vegetables. If you want a bit of a kick feel free to add in the cayenne and paprika or a pinch of red chilli pepper flakes. Taste the dip before you add the spices. You might like it as it is with a pinch more sea salt.

Either way, this dip is a winner.
