Pesto Hummus

Is anyone else trying to eat a little healthier this year? Homemade hummus is incredibly easy and uses such simple ingredients! It is also so versatile; I add it to salads, spread it on sandwiches and of course dip veggies in it for a healthy snack. You know what is better than regular hummus? PESTO hummus! That’s right, just add a little pesto to your hummus and you have a delicious crossover that anyone will love.

  • 1/3 cup pesto
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • Sprinkle sea salt to taste


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until creamy
  2. Add extra olive oil if consistency is too thick
  3. Salt to taste
