Cashew-Macadamia Nut Hummus

From Practically Raw: Flexible Raw Recipes Anyone Can Make by Amber Shea Crawley, (c) 2012.  Used by permission.

This nut-based raw hummus is thicker and richer than a typical zucchini version. It’s also my personal favorite!

3/4 cup cashews, soaked 2 to 4 hours and drained
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, soaked 2 to 4 hours and drained
1/4 cup tahini
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 small clove garlic, peeled

3/4 to 1 cup filtered water, as needed to thin

Combine all ingredients, including 3/4 cup water, in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Add additional water, 2 tablespoons at a time, as needed to thin. Transfer to a small bowl or container and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

Yield: about 2 cups
