Garlic Basil Hummus

 Hummus makes a healthy snack because the chickpeas are high in fiber, folic acid, a good source of iron, magnesium, copper and zinc. The lemon provides a good source of vitamin C and the olive oil is a source of healthy fat. Packed with good-for-you fats, hummus is a favorite go-to for quick, healthy snacks. I have had hummus a number of ways… both with and without tahini. I love it either way. This time I made it with out tahini.

1 can organic garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
1/2 lemon juiced
2-4 cloves garlic
5-10 leafs basil
2-3 tbs olive oil
Salt, ground coriander, cumin, paprika 
1 tbs tahini optional ( from Trader Joe's is the best)
I used almond butter instead of tahini, it worked out well

You can use a food processor or magic bullet. In magic bullet I pureed  half of the can of chickpeas  and garlic first. Then the other half adding olive oil to make it smooth.
Then added lemon juice, basil and spices. Usually I would cut basil in small squares but this time I purred it.
Make it in a smooth paste. If its too thick you can add a little bit of water.
Sprinkle with paprika.

Enjoy with your favorite crackers!!!


  1. We've tried mulitple hummus recipes and this one is the best. Watch the size of your garlic cloves. Ours were huge and it was way strong (and we LOVE garlic). Deeeeeeeeelicious!

    1. Yes this one is the best recipe:-) We love it!!!
