Almonds are a fantastic source of fiber and healthful fats. And they are quite tasty. This hummus has a unique flavor that is fantastic as a dip or sandwich spread.
1 cup raw almonds, soaked in water overnight
1/3 cup tahini
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients in a large food processor and mix until a smooth puree is formed. For a slightly chunky texture, reserve 2 Tbsp almonds (unsoaked) and add right at the end of pureeing. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
