Chef John's Green Hummus

Recipe by  

"This simple, basil-spiked 'green' hummus is a great summer twist on everyone's favorite spread. Turkey on wheat? Yawn. Turkey on wheat with green hummus? Hello! And don't even get me started on wraps. I won't even touch a wrap that doesn't contain hummus, and neither should you."

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add the basil and cook uncovered until bright green, about 20 seconds. Immediately plunge basil in ice water until cold. Squeeze basil to remove excess moisture and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Put basil, garlic, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, garbanzo beans, and white beans, salt, and black pepper, respectively, in a blender. Cover and blend until almost smooth; add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and puree until smooth.

This was a great appetizer to make on the spur of the moment because I usually have all these ingredients (or most of them) on hand. It was a little heavy on the garlic so i would use less next time. I added the juice of a whole lemon because my processor was struggling. The extra lemon did not make it too liquid. I served it with pita chips and sliced red peppers.
