Creamy sun-dried tomato spread

Most mornings I wake up just wanting coffee. Then by late morning, I start to get pretty hungry. I want a little snack or light lunch, and I want to make something easy, yet healthy. So this morning I was taking stock of what I needed to buy at the store later and found an unopened bottle of sun-dried tomatoes in the back of the fridge. I immediately opened them up and had one. I love the tart chewy taste of these little beauties. They are so versatile; you can chop them up and throw them in a salad, on top of a pizza, in a sandwich, or make them in to a spread.

It would be lovely on little toasted baguettes, like a tapenade. It would even be great for entertaining or bringing to parties. I spread mine on a piece of wheat toast for a healthy snack!
