Tomato basil hummus is a bold, exciting flavor of hummus that has a Mediterranean influence. Perfect with piping hot pita!

· 2 cups chickpeas, drained and rinsed, or soaked if using dried
· 1 can (15 ounce) whole, peeled tomatoes
· 2 tablespoons of tahini
· 2 ½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice
· 2 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
· 1/4 teaspoon cumin
· 1 clove of garlic, crushed
· 1/2 teaspoon salt
· 2 ½ tablespoon basil, chopped

In a blender or food processor, blend the chickpeas. Add tomatoes, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, basil, and salt until the ingredients form a creamy, paste-like consistency. Pour the mixture into a large serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.

I put this hummus on a wrap with cucumber, spinach and tomato and make a sandwich!
