I used my homemade Broccoli Pesto, a thicker pesto. It would be simply delicious if you made the Broccoli Pesto, however you can use any pesto that isn't runny and saucy. Using the pesto, you don't need any tahini or olive oil.
This time I made the Broccoli Pesto with fresh parsley instead of spinach (as in the recipe) since that is what I had on hand. To match, I added some fresh parsley to the hummus. If your pesto uses basil, add basil - etc. This makes a pretty big batch of hummus - we eat it very quickly as a spread for sandwiches and dip for crackers and veggies. Cut the recipe in half if you don't think you'll eat it all in time.
- 2 cups chickpeas
- 6 tablespoon Broccoli Pesto
- 1 tablespoon [vegan] mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
- pinch of sea salt, to taste
