Recipe type: Appetiser
Serves: 24 servings
 
Ingredients
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
  • 1 cup of raw cashews
  • ¼ cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 tsp tahini
  • 1 ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbspn olive oil
  • ⅓ cup water
Instructions
  1. Before making the hummus, soak the raw cashews in water for 8 hours Soaking the cashews allows for them to blend better, and makes for an overall creamier texture. It is important to buy raw cashews and not roasted cashews, because the roasted cashews will not absorb as much water as raw cashews.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a food processor or vitamix and blend until the desired consistency is reached. More water may be added if need be.
  3. Enjoy!
