Easy Homemade Almond Hummus
Easy Homemade Almond Hummus is a tasty switch up to a traditional hummus, using almonds instead of the usual tahini. Learn how to make hummus from scratch! Serve with toasted baguette slices, pita chips or fresh veggies for a healthy, nutritious snack.
- 15.5 ounces chickpeas canned
- ½ cup raw almonds sliced
- 2 cloves garlic
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- ½ teaspoons salt
- ¼ teaspoons black pepper
Drain chickpeas and reserve liquid. Keep a few of the chickpeas for garnish at the end.
Add chickpeas to a food processor with the almonds, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Turn on food processor and slowly add in olive oil. Occasionally scrape down the sides of the bowl.
Add reserved chickpea liquid until you get your desired consistency. I used 5 Tbsp.
Taste and add any extra salt and pepper as needed.
Makes 1 3/4 cups.
A serving is 2 tablespoons.
Make sure to save the water from the can of chickpeas to thin out the hummus if it's too thick. It has WAY more flavor than water.
