Healthy, Delicious (and Quick!) Basil Hummus Dip Recipe

Updated on December 16, 2014

We were originally experimenting with nice herbs to mix with our home made hummus when we tasted this delicious basil hummus! It's AMAZING! I love eating it with carrot or corn chips and my friends and family love it too. You have to try this delicious dip. It's packed with nutrients (like vitamin A & C, iron and calcium) and it's so healthy (and yummy!). And the best thing about it is the time to make it. We put 3-6 minutes however when you get used to making it - you can make in about 2 MINUTES. Wow!
