Today’s Clean Eat – Basil Hummus Recipe

A quick little treat that I made as an afternoon snack before hitting the gym

It was delicious – dipped carrots and celery in (and maybe possibly a finger)

Here are the ingredients you will need to make a big batch 🙂

  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 cups sweet basil leaves, packed
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed then minced
  • 2 15-ounce cans garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained*
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Up to 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons salt
  • Several dashes Tabasco
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste

Blitz them all together using a handheld blender or in a blender and voila – a delicious afternoon treat

To make it go an incredible green colour – really go nuts with the basil leaves – unfortunately didn’t quite have enough in the house – but still tasted incredible
