So good! I made this exactly as written, and I don't think I'll change anything next time around. This makes a great sandwich filling, and was a good way to use up my extra basil. Thanks for posting!

This is a great way to use up the basil harvest at the end of the season. Next time I make this, I will reduce the amount of lemon.

For my taste, the amounts of lemon juice and tahini were a bit much and overwhelmed the basil a little. If I make this again, I'll decrease both.

Wow. Just Wow! Made with all super fresh ingredients and used organic cannellini beans. I also used 2 very large garlic cloves, which worked out very well. I served with black bean tortilla chips and will use leftovers in combination with sandwich ingredients. Super!! Thanks so much for sharing!

What a wonderful hummus! I was so eager to make this that I used garbanzo beans instead of cannellini as that was what I had in the pantry. My basil is thriving and I was looking for uses. I'll make this again and freeze some for my DH who loves hummus. Thank you for a great recipe.

I made this as a spur of the moment, we need a dip to go with dinner thing. I had all the ingredients with the exception of the parsley. I whipped it up in the food processor. I did not tell DH what it was and just asked him to try it. We both loved it! In the past I have tried to make hummus, but it just never seems flavorful enough. This did the trick and it was perfect with our meal. I am planning on making tomorrow as part of a bruschetta appetizer with several other toppings.

This was really good. I used a little less oil and a 1/4 teaspoon each of salt, pepper (and also smoked paprika). I definitely did not need to add water to this - it was just the right consistency.

I've made this twice now. It's excellent, and a nice change from other hummus recipes. Thanks!

I've been making tons of hummus for the DH lately and he really enjoyed this one. I did have to add extra olive oil & some water to get it going but that was probably because I used home cooked beans instead of canned. He said this was very fresh & tasty! So far just served this with veggies sticks for dipping but will serve on a veggie wrap tomorrow. Thanks so much Prose!! Made for Veg*n Swap 25!
