Basil Butter Dip & Hummus

I had some friends over this weekend and made these two delectable dipping treats!

The Basil butter is on the left and the Hummus is on the right (and isn't that funky Guam serving tray just about the funniest and oddest thing you've ever seen?! I came across it on a recent thrifting adventure and just couldn't pass it up!)

Basil Butter Recipe Hummus Recipe
Indgredients: Indgredients:
2-3 packed cups of fresh basil leaves 1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans
1/2 stick of butter 1 clove of garlic
1 clove of garlic 2 tablespoons low fat sour cream
salt to taste 2 tablespoons lemon juice
healthy drizzle of olive oil
salt to taste
*1 tablespoon of tahini paste

With both dips, you can just place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smoothe. Serve with crackers (I love triscuits) or slice up a nice French baguette!

*If you have tahini paste, it adds a very authentic taste to the hummus, but trust me it will be good enough to devour without it. When I make "specialty" hummus dips by adding roasted red pepper
