Tomato & Basil Hummus Dip

If you are a fan of Trader Joe’s, you will like this! One of my favorite items from Trader Joe’s, is the Tomato & Basil Hummus Dip. I crave for this ever since I moved out of USA! I was on mission to replicate this and I did it! If you have a blender or food processor at home, try it!
