If you are looking to brighten up your hummus game then you have come to the right place. While this strictly isn’t exactly hummus it is still in the same family so I am using the term loosely here. It’s a butter bean dip with hints of everything that makes basil pesto fabulous.

It is a bright green dip with lots of freshness and zing. It is perfect on veggie sandwiches, on your favourite nourish bowls or simply serve it as a dip with crackers or veggies. It is versatile and delicious and I hope you will like it!
