Basil Feta Hummus

It’s a short work week thanks to the independence of our country! Woohoo! So that means there will be tons of cookouts and picnics (which reminds me to tell my husband to take me on one … a picnic that is 😉 ) This hummus is tahini free (I never have tahini on hand) and has a subtle flavor of basil and feta: my favorite duo at the moment! See, its good with fruit, too!

With 6 ingredients and one food processor later, you’ll have a delicious and light dip for that cookout. Pair it with pita chips, carrots, cucumbers or spoons. Let’s be honest … I can eat hummus with a spoon and nothing else. So good!

I began searching online to find ways to use it up as quickly as I can. I came across many recipes with basil being paired with strawberries … and now I know why. I love infusing my water with this dynamic duo. But what’s even better? Having it for breakfast.

I just want to say that this isn’t your average morning toast. It isn’t even your average ricotta toast. I’ve had many versions, but this one has to be hands-down my favorite. Why? The addition of lemon zest. It’s responsible for bringing this to a whole other level …like, cloud 9 level. Ahh, so good.
