Hummus with two flavors

Hummus with basil or sun drier tomatoes

Two variations on the classic hummus

Chickpeas are a favorite of mine, simply because there are so much you can do with them. Take the classic hummus for example, you can vary it in a billion different ways, and here are two flavors that are currently my two favorites. One is flavored with sun-dried tomatoes and the other with basil.

Hummus is super easy to make and a home-made hummus tastes  a whole lot better than a bought one. That it also gives you the opportunity to flavor it just the way you want makes it even better!


Hummus with basil or sun drier tomatoes

As a spread, dipp or filling

The hummus flavored with basil is slightly milder and fresher and closer to the original than the one with sun dried tomatoes and I think it’s great to use for a dip or as a spread. It’s quite creamy and getting the jar to last for more than a couple of days is hard.

The one flavored with sun dried tomatoes is slightly heavier and has a more distinct flavor, and fits well both as a spread and to dip something that hasn’t a whole lot of taste in. Something else I like to use it for is as a filling in, for example, pirogs and small pies.
