Paleo Almond Hummus

This is a great way to include some extra protein in your diet. Also a winner if you’re on the Paleo diet or if you are intolerant to pulses/legumes and you miss the taste of hummus.

  • 2 cups soaked blanched almonds (the longer you soak them the easier they are to puree, I pop them in the fridge overnight)
  • 2 Tblsp Olive Oil
  • 1/3 cup Tahini
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup water
  • Season to taste
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp lemon zest

Blitz till the consistency is similar to regular hummus.

I love this as a snack with vegetables; it’s also divine with grilled lamb fillet and salad.
