Cashew Hummus

Replacing traditional sesame tahini with roasted cashews adds great flavour to this hummus.


  • 1 540-mL can chickpeas, drained and rinsed well

  • 1/2 cup roasted, unsalted cashews

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

  • 1/2 tsp finely chopped garlic

  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 3-4 tsp water


  • Combine chickpeas with cashews, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Purée until well combined.

  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl and continue blending, adding water gradually until hummus is the texture you like.
