Since I live in Hawaii, I can have fresh basil in my garden year round. (don't hate) Well, my basil is doing so good right now and I wanted to put it to use! This is one of our favorite snacks.
I basically just dump everything together, so the measurements are approximate. Just use what you feel like :)
Sun Dried Tomato Basil Hummus
2 cans chick peas, drained
4-6 sun dried tomatoes
3 cloves garlic
10 or so fresh basil leaves
1 t salt
ground pepper to taste
1/2 C olive oil
Add everything together in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. You may have to add additional olive oil if you aren't getting a smooth consistency. Super easy!!
Enjoy with pita chips or carrot sticks!
