Basil and Pesto Hummus


This deliciously sweet hummus is bursting with basil and an all-around pesto body. it's so good, you could eat this by itself with a spoon, although spreading it on crackers of any kind will do.

  • ½ cup basil leaves
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon soy sauce
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Combine the garbanzo beans, basil, and garlic in a food processor; pulse several times. Use a spatula to push mixture from sides of processor bowl. Pulse the mixture again while drizzling in the olive oil. Add the vinegar and soy sauce; pulse until combined. Season with salt and pepper.
