Walnut Hummus Spread

Dr. Bernadette Janczak, ND

This is a great spread on crackers, pitas or healthy bread such as Ezekiel

bread with some pesto on top, a slice of tomato and chopped onion to

have a tasty sandwich with your lunch salad. You can also wrap in

lettuce or collard greens and add sprouts and chopped vegetables.


2 cups raw walnuts (previously soaked for 2-6 hrs)

4 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 medium clove of garlic

1/2 small onion (or to your taste)

2 tsp. raw tahini

1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp. Herbamare spice, or Himalayan sea salt

1/4 c water or more if needed

1 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)


1. Put 2 cups of walnuts in a high speed blender. Pulse the nuts first just to break them into smaller pieces. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend on high speed to a smooth pudding mixture.

2. Add a little more water during blending if needed. The hummus will thicken after being refrigerated.
