Raw Vegan Sun-Dried Tomato Spread

  16 rater(s)

Sun-dried tomatoes have a very distinct flavor that creates the perfect dip. Combine them with the signature flavor of garlic, freshness of basil, and the crisp bite of green onions and they taste even better. It’s important that you don’t buy the sun-dried tomatoes that come in oil because they are not raw. Buy the sun-dried tomatoes that come dehydrated in a plastic bag. Just make sure that they don’t contain sulfur.
