Healthy nut butters and spreads are very delicious and full of nutritional value. It is easy to avoid dairy and butter if you have healthy alternatives.
Here is one of my favourites.
WALNUT HUMMUS ( spread )
1.5-2 cups raw walnuts
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 medium garlic
1/2 small onion
2 tsp. raw tahini
1-2 T extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. Herbamare spice, or Himalayan sea salt
1 tsp. cayenne pepper ( optional )
Blend to pudding texture.
Add a small amount of water or as needed during blending. The hummus will thicken after being refrigerated.
May add to salads, spread on crackers or pitas.
Wrap in lettuce or collard greens with addition of sprouts and chopped vegetables.
