Recipe: Lemon Basil Hummus

Another super simple food processor recipe today! :) I've make hummus at home once before, but didn't love it because I added too much tahini. Tahini definitely adds that unique Mediterranean flavor, but I've realized it's not necessary as an ingredient in hummus. I particularly love the flavor of lemon in hummus, so I thought this would be a great combo and a good way to use up my summer basil- and it turned out amazing! Try this for your next get together or potluck :) Also, check out this awesome guide from Shape magazine for other creative hummus combos!


1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil 

Place all ingredients in the food processor except olive oil. Turn processor on and let blend for 15 seconds, and then slowly pour in olive oil while it's still processing. Process to desired consistency. Enjoy with veggies or crackers!
