Nut ‘n’ Curry Hummus
By Sarah Axtell, ND • July 24, 2008
If you like hummus, here is an interesting twist on the delicious chickpea spread. It has almond butter and curry powder in it to give it a creamy texture and an Indian flavor. When served with rice crackers, this is a perfect appetizer for entertaining. Or spread it on sandwiches for lunch.
-3 cups cooked garbanzo beans (if using cans, that’s 2 cans)
-1/4 cup water
-1/2 cup tahini
-3 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
-1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp lemon juice
-1/2-1 tsp salt
-1/2 cup almond butter
-2 tsps curry powder
-paprika for garnish
Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender. You may need to add a little extra water if it needs more moisture.
