Almond Hummus
« on: October 12, 2013, 08:35:16 AM »
Hey everyone,

Here's a great recipe for a tasty hummus. This recipe is especially useful for people who don't digest garbanzo beans very well.

Ingredients: (makes 2 -3 cups)
2 cups almonds
cup tahini (preferably raw)
teaspoon black pepper
teaspoon salt
2 cloves chopped garlic
2 teaspoon cumin
cup lemon juice
cup olive oil
1 cup water (or more depending on desired consistency)

Soak almonds overnight.
In a food processor, grind down almonds.
Add the remaining ingredients, minus 3/4 of the water.
Puree the ingredients together, adding water until you reach a desired consistency & texture.
Taste and adjust any ingredients to your liking.

Serve and enjoy  :)

Sounds very good. Thank you.

Here's another one (Beet Hummus) that doesn't use garbanzos. Instead of posting the recipe, I'm posting the URl, because the accompanying commentary will amuse perhaps everyone, but especially parents:

BTW, what peak is that you've topped out on? Looks like somewhere in the Sierras.
