USANA Test Kitchen Winner! Basil Hummus

Basil HummusMaybe you remember that last month, we held a #RESETNation recipe contest to collect some of your best USANA recipes. And, well, you delivered.

We received over 80 different, mouth-watering recipes that all used a USANA foods ingredient in one way or another. Some were savory and a lot were sweet. Personally, my favorite part was the taste-testing. Obviously.

Missy Bird, a writer for USANA, and I stirred, cooked and baked all morning one day back in March and brought in the top 10 dishes for a panel of judges to try out. While they were all good, one savory recipe stood out above the rest!

Mupidi Varalaxmi submitted her recipe for Basil Hummus using USANA’s Fibergy® Plus and it blew us away. Don’t just take my word for it though. Try it out yourself!

Basil Hummus

  • 1 c. fresh basil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-2 red chilis, minced
  • 1/4 c. pistachios, soaked in water
  • 2 c. chickpeas, boiled and drained
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. Fibergy Plus
  • salt to taste

1. Place the basil leaves, garlic and chilis in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped.

2. Add in the pistachios (drained), chickpeas, olive oil, water, lemon juice, Fibergy Plus and salt. Pulse until smooth.

3. Place in a bowl and drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Serve with fresh vegetables, pita wedges or crackers. This is also great as a sandwich spread!
