This luxury Basil and Pine Nut Avocado Dip is a wonderful keto alternative to hummus. Pairs well with grain free crackers like these Keto Rosemary & Onion Crackers, as a dip for raw crudités, tossed through a crunchy salad or my favourite, smothered over scrambled eggs. The toasted pine nuts add a real buttery depth of flavour that will keep you coming back for more!
