How to Make Basil Pesto Hummus
2.1. First prepare the pesto sauce: mix basil leaves, garlic, Parmesan and pine nuts in a blender. Add the olive oil, a little at a time to emulsify, and continue blending until all the ingredients come together.
3.2. Add the chickpeas and salt, and blend again until smooth.
4.3. Transfer to a bowl, and add the lemon juice. Mix well and check seasoning. Finish with a drizzling of olive oil, a sprinkling of red chilli powder and fresh basil leaves on top. Serve with pita breads.
