Basil hummus

So a simple recipe for hummus! Hummus is really easy to make and you can put anything  in it. We decided to make a basil hummus since we love basil.


One can of chickpeas

Half a small lime

2 tablespoons tahini

1 Clove of garlic, to your own preference

Hand full of basil leaves


 Drain the chick peas, put the liquid from the chick peas in to a glass and leave to the side. Pour the chick peas into the food processor add the tahini, the juice from the lime and the garlic and the basil, add a small amount of the liquid from the chickpeas then turn on the food processor for a good 30 seconds add more juice from the chickpeas if you want it to be more of a liquid consistency but hummus should not be too runny, you want to be able to dip your chips or vegetables in it šŸ™‚
