Hello Everyone! I hope that you are all doing good! It has been a bit since I last posted a recipe but things have been really busy with work and life in general! I have a bunch of recipes that I have shot but just haven't had the chance to write them out, hopefully now that things are a little less hectic I can be back to a normal posting schedule! Today I am going to share another hummus recipe (Roasted Carrot and Parsnip Hummus Recipe here) but I have to say that this is the best hummus I have made in my opinion! It is smokey and cheesy and so good! Keep reading for recipe!
Total Time to Make: 5 minutes
Gluten Free/Dairy Free/Vegan/Plant Based/Dips/Hummus/Easy/Party Food
*3/4 Cup of Cashews (Soaked in hot water for at least an hour)
*1/2 Cup of Veggie Broth
*2 Garlic Cloves
*Juice of Half a Lemon
*1/2 Cup of Nutritional Yeast
*1 Can of Cooked Chickpeas
*2 Tbsp of Tahini
*1 tsp of Sea Salt
*4-5 Drops of Liquid Smoke
*Fresh or Dried Herbs of Choice (I used basil, dill, parsley, oregano and ground white pepper) (use as much or as little as you want)
*Soak the cashews for at least one hour before preparing the hummus, the longer the better though as you want the cashews to blend well.
*In a high speed blender or food processor place the cashews, veggie broth, garlic, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, chickpeas, tahini salt, liquid smoke and dried herbs. Blend until smooth.
*Place in a bowl and serve immediately with gluten free crackers, gluten free pita or veggies. Enjoy!
As I mentioned, this is my favorite hummus recipe that I have made so far. I feel like the smokiness makes this dip unique and it should come as no surprise that anything that tastes cheezy, I am down to eat! The cashews add a creaminess that I have not really tasted in a hummus before and with the tahini it is really a winning combination. This dip tastes great with veggies and crackers but tortilla chips or pita would also taste great! This dip would be perfect to bring to a barbecue or a party and would pair great with my Roasted Red Pepper Dip.
It is hard to believe that we are already into June and that summer is fast approaching! I am curious what you all have planned for the summer. Let me know in the comments below!
