Love hummus but can't digest beans? Here is a great legume-free almond hummus from guest blogger Savitri. In fact it's so delicious, you will want to try it even if you can eat regular hummus. And if you make your own almond milk, it's a wonderful way to use up the almond pulp.
1.5 cups almond pulp
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tsp. ghee
2 garlic cloves
3 Tbsp. of lime jiuce (or more to taste)
2 Tbsp. tahini (or more to taste)
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 pinch of cayenne (optional)
1 - 2 Tb of water (you may add more to get the desired consistency)
After you strain your homemade almond milk, keep the pulp to make your almond hummus.
Fry the garlic with the ghee.
When the garlic is almost done, add the cumin seeds roast them for a few seconds.
Put all the ingredients in your food processor or blender, and blend it until is smooth.
Serve it with carrots, celery or your favorite gluten free bread.
