"This simple, basil-spiked 'green' hummus is a great summer twist on everyone's favorite spread. Turkey on wheat? Yawn. Turkey on wheat with green hummus? Hello! And don't even get me started on wraps. I won't even touch a wrap that doesn't contain hummus, and neither should you."

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add the basil and cook uncovered until bright green, about 20 seconds. Immediately plunge basil in ice water until cold. Squeeze basil to remove excess moisture and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Put basil, garlic, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, garbanzo beans, and white beans, salt, and black pepper, respectively, in a blender. Cover and blend until almost smooth; add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and puree until smooth.

We really liked this - much better than the store bought stuff I usually buy. The basil gives it a nice bit of extra flavor, and the garlic - I used five cloves, since mine were rather small, a...

I haven't made a lot of hummus, so I don't have recipes to compare this one to. It was a little on the thicker side, but I liked it that way. It sure was quick and easy to make. Raw garlic is...

I made this recipe last night and it came out dry and thick. I added more olive oil, lemon juice and extra seasonings. I also added one avocado to give it more taste and I drizzled about 1/2 cup...

Better as a sandwich spread than a dip.
