Mixed Bean and Basil Hummus - Suma Blogger's Network

Mixed Bean and Basil Hummus
Here's my second post for the Suma Blogger's Network. I decided on a variation on hummus using mixed beans rather than chickpeas, and Italian flavourings instead of the traditional Middle Eastern ones. I must say it worked really well and tastes great with crudites or fresh crusty bread.

  • 1 tin of mixed beans, rinsed and well drained (I used Suma organic mixed beans)
  • a good handful of basil, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp toasted pine nuts
 Suma Blogger's NetworkBlend all ingredients, except for the pine nuts, until smooth. Season to taste.
Drizzle with olive oil and top with the toasted pine nuts.
Chill until needed.
Will keep for a couple of days in an airtight container in the fridge. 

As a member of the Suma Blogger's Network, I will receive a selection of complimentary products from Suma every two months, to use in recipe development, and will blog an original recipe for the Network.
