I have an obsession, more like an addiction.
Hi, my name is Channing and I am addicted to Basil Pesto Hummus. We went and had lunch last week at Zoes Kitchen where I reintroduced myself to this heavenly goodness.
You see, I have had this delicious Basil Pesto Hummus before but this time, this time once it was gone I couldn’t stop thinking about it. My need to have this hummus accessible to me on a
daily regular basis consumed me.
Ok, obviously I am kidding but you guys this stuff really is ridiculously delicious. It is so delicious that I had to figure out how to recreate the recipe at home. And you know what, I think I have mastered it!
This hummus is perfect with pita bread/chips, veggies and anything else you would want to slather it on.
Here is what you need to make your own.
1/2 cup fresh basil (do not skimp on the basil)
1 can Chickpeas
2 cloves garlic
Juice of 1 Lemon
2 tbsp Tahini Paste
Salt to taste
4 tbsp Olive oil
2 tbsp Walnuts
1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
Simply add all of the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. Chill and serve.
Ok I have talked about this Basil Pesto Hummus enough. Now, it’s time for me to go eat some more!
Oh man, I tried this recipient and it tasted great but the color was unappetizing baby poo green not the fresh green in your awesome picture. An suggestions to get that bright green color??
