Basil and Black Pepper Hummus

I bought Basil and Black Pepper Hummus once and it was so delicious, I had to try to re-create it at home! Generally, hummus is very easy to make and packed full of goodness! You can make it to suit your own tastes and add your favourite flavours. All in all, it takes about 5 minutes to make and will last in your fridge for a week. Gorgeous on rye crackers, vegetable sticks or batons, in a pitta or on a salad. This simple snack supports your digestive system, immune system and cholesterol levels. Healthy snacks can be tasty too!
