Prep Time: 10 min
Ease of Preparation: Easy
Servings: Makes about 1 1/2 cups
Ingredients (use organic ingredients where available):
- 1 cup cooked chickpeas
- 1/3 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup ground almonds
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic granules
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon parsley leaf flakes
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
- 1/2 dash tamari
- salt to taste
- coarse-grind black pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. Serve at room temperature or cool.
For appetizers, you might make open-face hummus tea sandwiches topped with a halved cherry tomato.
– Yes, chickpeas already have a nutty taste, but the addition of almonds gives this dip a deliciously different spin. Chips and breads are good dippers for hummus. And of course it makes a tasty sandwich spread.
