Basil Hummus

Basil Hummus

A refreshing summer twist on hummus- Basil hummus! ⁣

I had a beautiful bunch of basil sitting in my kitchen... and I thought hmmm... I love pesto... and I love hummus- so voila!⁣

This recipe is super fast, healthy and super creamy for dipping veggies, tomatoes (think caprese), or any cracker or chip of your choice, or as a layer on a sandwich or  “meal in a bowl”.⁣


1 can garbanzo beans (15 oz)⁣

1 cup sweet basil leaves⁣

1/3 cup raw cashews, roasted⁣

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil⁣

2 tbsp water⁣

Salt to taste⁣

3 garlic cloves, peeled⁣

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice⁣

1/4 cup tahini ⁣


1. Throw it all into a food processor ⁣

2. Pulse until smooth & creamy⁣


Garbanzo beans have protein & fiber (prebiotics!) to keep you full & the cashews & tahini add a whole food source of healthy fats⁣

🌱 Basil leaves contain Eugenol- an aromatic oil that has anti-inflammatory properties⁣

What is your favorite way to enjoy hummus?⁣
