Lemon Basil Hummus

This is kind of a cross between hummus, pesto, and tapenade. It's wonderful as a dip, in wraps and sandwiches, or as a stir-in with pasta. Buzz it up at a moment's notice, and get snackin'.

1 can chickpeas (1 1/2 cups), drained and rinsed

1 can black olives, drained
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 T miso
water to thin

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
