Was very good after I added only half the amount of basil. I also added 1/4 cup more of the sun dried tomatoes than the recipe called for, but came out good. Consistency was great, not runny at all.

First off I love hummus and basil! I've also tried all flavors imaginable. This is one of the most flavorful recipes i've ever tried. I made as is exept I cut back the olive oil a bit to cut some calories and I personally don't like some of the hummus you get that is just sitting in it. I cannot wait to make more (ours is all gone) for my hummus loving family memebers! Thx so much for the great recipe.

This recipe mentions BASIL in the title. Of course you should expect that flavor to come through. I enjoy basil and this was an excellent use of a number of leaves from my many plants. The flavor of it comes through nicely and does not overpower the other flavors in the hummus. The garlic adds a nice bite as well. Thanks, Leslie A, for sharing your recipe!
