Sundried Tomato Spread

sundried pestoOK I have to admit this isn’t one of my originals, it actually comes from a wicked site called Thug Kitchen, I have to warn you that the language is pretty outrageous but the recipes are well worth it.  Check out their FB page as well for more fun and ‘edgy’ recipes.

This spread is awesome on a sandwich, pasta, crackers or pretty much anything you want to either dip in it or to add a little punch too. Not a lot of fat but I like to add some avocado to my sandwich so that takes care of that. it also happens to pack a punch in the protein department.

Instructions
  1. Put the sundried tomatoes in a small bowl and cover them with the warm water for 15 minutes. If you are using the ones that come in oil and are soft enough then you might be able to skip this step, they are a little more expensive though so I usually stick to the regular dried ones in a package not the ones in the open at the grocery store (besides who wants stuff out in the open that people can sneeze on? yuk)
  2. While the tomatoes soak, cook the onions in a small pan with a little bit of coconut oil until they begin to look brown and smell awesome, like 5-8 minutes. I don't recommend cooking with olive oil as it turns rancid at high temperatures. Besides you can benefit from cooking with healthy fats like coconut oil so why not get that extra bang for your buck?
  3. Take the tomatoes out of the water and chop them up into pieces but save the water they were soaking in.
  4. Chop up the garlic into little pieces.
  5. Put the beans, sundried tomatoes, onions, and 2 tablespoons of the water from the tomatoes in a food processor and chop up very small.
  6. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend it all together until it starts to look creamy. Add more of the soaking water if it looks a little dry. It’s ok if there are still some bigger tomato bits it adds a cool look to the finished product.
