Garlic Basil Nut Hummus (Paleo, Whole30 + Keto)

One of my favorite snacks prior to going Paleo was hummus and veggies. It was so easy to make or buy and felt like a filling, healthy snack. We don’t eat legumes anymore though, so when Justin made this tasty garlic basil nut hummus, I was thrilled to have a dip for veggies and plantain chips!

Consistency Like Traditional Hummus

I know – you’re wondering about the consistency, right? Does it really stack up? Well, I’m here to tell you it totally does! This garlic basil nut hummus is thick and smooth yet grainy at the same time, just like traditional chickpea hummus. Just take a look, and decide for yourself. Don’t you want to start dipping some veggies or plantain chips?!

Customize It

We got the inspiration for this recipe from this macadamia nut hummus from Paleo Leap. They even have a recipe for sweet potato hummus, too. Anyway, you can really customize the flavors to your liking and even try other soft nuts. We used both macadamia nuts and cashews. The cashews add a little bit of a sweeter taste. Add your favorite herbs and spices!
