Raw Hummus

Raw Hummus

Since moving to mostly raw foods, I've been missing this Mediteranean treat something FIERCE, so I was thrilled to find this delicious, raw version (adapted to my tastes, of course!) on the Crazy Sexy Cancer website

We've also shared this with some friends who gave it a serious thumbs up, so call that a win for raw foods!

Tools needed: 
food processor
20 minutes
1 cup soaked rinsed, soaked raw almonds (soaking water has been poured off, almonds patted dry) or raw almond pulp leftover from making nutmilk
1/4 cup to 1/3 cup water
1/4 cup raw tahini
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
juice from 1 lemon
1 tbs fresh minced parsley
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground cumin (adjust to taste)
1/4 cup cold-pressed olive oil
  1. Whiz the almonds in the food processor until they're finely ground.
  2. Add the water and make it a pretty smooth.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients (and more water if you like, hummus may thicken up).
  4. Blend until smooth and adjust seasonings to taste.
  5. Spoon into a serving bowl, sprinkle with paprika and chopped parsley to garnish.  Serve with your favorite raw crackers and veggies.  Enjoy!
