Raw Almond Pulp Hummus

Raw Almond Nut HummusI make my own almond milk and am forever trying to find new ways of using up the almond pulp. This is just one of them. When I found this recipe (from My New Roots) my first thought was, "Great, I've got tahini to use up, so I'll make this hummus straight away!" Unfortunately, I couldn't find the tahini anywhere but I did find a packet of sesame seeds ......

So first, I made my own tahini - who knew it was so easy?!!! Then ...... I used it to make my own raw almond pulp hummus!

 

Tahini

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt

Method

  1. Gently toast the sesame seeds in a dry saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until the seeds become fragrant and very lightly coloured - approx 3-5 mins.
  2. Transfer toasted seeds to a large plate and cool.
  3. Add the sesame seeds to the bowl of a food processor and process until a crumbly paste forms, about 1 minute. Add the oil and process for another 2 to 3 minutes. You will need to scrape the bottom and sides of the food processor a couple times.
  4. Taste the tahini and add salt to taste if desired. Process a few more seconds to mix it in.
  5. Store in a sealed glass jar in the fridge.

 

Raw Almond Pulp Hummus

Ingredients

  • 1-¼ cups nut pulp
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 4 tbsp raw tahini
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • pinch sea salt + pepper

Method

  1. In a food processor, pulse to mince garlic. Add everything but the nut pulp and blend until creamy.
  2. With the motor running, slowly add the nut pulp a few spoonfuls at a time until you have everything well blended. If desired, add more water, one tablespoon at a time, until the desired consistency is reached.
  3. Serve. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. (Remember that the nut pulp will last for up to seven days, so make your hummus quickly after the nut milk!)

Next time, I think I'll add some courgette to the hummus, as I think that will make it even more delicious!

Enjoy!
