    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat the pine nuts in a small skillet on medium high heat. Stir them when they start to brown. When most of them have lightly browned, remove them from the pan into a bowl to cool. (Reserve a few pine nuts for garnish.).
    2. 2
      In the bowl of a food processor, place the basil leaves and the garlic. Pulse until finely chopped.
    3. 3
      Add the rinsed and drained garbanzo beans, most of the pine nuts, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, tahini, tomato paste, and a few dashes of Tabasco. Pulse several times, for several seconds each time, until the hummus is smooth. Add more Tabasco and salt or lemon juice to taste.
    4. 4
      Add water to the point of desired consistency.
    5. 5
      To serve, place in a bowl and drizzle a little olive oil over it. Sprinkle with a few toasted pine nuts. Serve with pita wedges, crackers, or rustic bread.
