I loved the basil hummus that I found on Cookpad. The basil flavoured hummus suits my taste better than classic hummus, but it was a little too heavy for me. So I am now writing the altered recipe for myself. You can find the original recipe here.
1 can (400 g) Chickpeas *drained and rinsed
1 cloves Garlic
Juice of 1 large Lemon
3 tablespoons Tahini
Salt & Black Pepper as required
2-3 tablespoons Cold Water
1 handful Basil Leaves
- Place Chickpeas and Garlic in the food processor, and blend. Then add Lemon Juice, Tahini, Salt & Pepper, and blend until smooth.
- Add Cold Water gradually until the paste turns soft as required. Finally add Basil Leaves and blend as you like.
- Sprinkle some Ground Paprika and drizzle Olive Oil over and enjoy.
