If you dont like the slightly bitter aftertaste of tahini paste in hummus, this is the recipe for you. Made from macadamia nut-butter (any nut-butter is good) it produces a buttery, soft hummus with a delicious umami taste.
1 x 400g can chickpeas
60ml nut butter (I use the Babylonstoren Macadamia nut butter but you may use any variation that appeals to you)
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
30ml lemon juice
Drain the chickpeas and place in a liquidiser/cup of a stick blender.
Add the nut butter, garlic, lemon juice and salt.
Blitz together until smooth.
Serve as a dip with crispy vegetable sticks or simply slosh it onto a cracker or fresh slice of bread.
PS: I sprinkled sunflower and chia seeds on the hummus to add another layer of taste.
