Delicious garlic white bean basil hummus made with flavorful garlic, zesty lemon juice, and fresh basil. The perfect, easy homemade hummus to pair with veggies and homemade toasted pita chips.
Cut each pita into 8 wedges and place wedges in a large bowl. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil or spray with olive oil cooking spray and gently toss to coat. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon salt all over wedges adding other spices if desired; toss again to coat.
Make your hummus: combine beans, garlic, lemon juice, basil, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a couple of times until the mixture looks somewhat chopped.
The hummus should be stored in the refrigerator and can be made 1 day ahead.
The pita chips should be kept at room temperature in a container.
