This deliciously sweet hummus is bursting with basil. it's so good, you could eat this by itself with a spoon, although spreading it on crackers of any kind will do.
This was excellent! I doubled the garlic, soy sauce, and balsamic vinegar for extra flavor. I will definitely make this again and again! - 02 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Didn't have fresh basil but did have some pesto that I had prepared with fresh basil. I too thought that the hummus needed more oil to spread well and I also added a tsp or so of lemon juice to brighten the fresh taste. Blended in feta cheese by hand before serving. I took this to an office luncheon and received compliments. Will make this again once I have an abundance of basil from the garden... - 28 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This is absolutely delicious, especially served on a slice of homemade french bread!!! I did have a few changes to the recipe, however. First of all, I did not have any balsamic vinegar on hand, so I used red wine vinegar instead. Secondly, while pureeing the mixture, it became very dry, so I added water until it was the desired consistency. Other than those two changes, the recipe was fantastic! I made this for Christmas, and everyone loved it's amazing flavor! - 26 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
