Almond Hummus Recipe

Though hummus made with chickpeas is a favorite dish in our home, occasionally, we like to mix things up and make different types of hummus that are chickpea-free.

If you're a fan of almonds, I encourage you to give the following almond hummus recipe a try - it's rich in naturally occurring vitamin E, magnesium, and calcium, all of which can help keep your heart and blood vessels healthy as you age.

Almond Hummus Recipe

Makes about 2.5 cups

Ingredients:

2 cups almonds, soaked for 12 hours, then rinsed
2/3 cup organic tahini
1/2 cup water
2 cloves garlic
Juice of 2 small lemons
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or cilantro

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and puree.

This almond hummus serves as a nice dip for raw veggies. It also makes for a nice sandwich spread - we like it with whole grain bread and a pile of lettuce, tomato slices, and red onion slices.
