This tangy, fresh-tasting hummus is made with macadamia nuts, which are a good source of protein and fibre as well as vitamin and minerals such as B1 and manganese. Tahini is a Middle Eastern paste made from ground sesame seeds and is an excellent source of healthy unsaturated fats. It will keep in the fridge for 2–3 days.
180g macadamia nuts, soaked in water for 24 hours, drained and rinsed
2–3 cloves garlic
3 tbsp lemon juice
4 tbsp rapeseed oil
2 tbsp tahini
Pinch cayenne pepper
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Place all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until you have a smooth paste. Add a little water to loosen if necessary. Taste and adjust the seasoning and then transfer to a bowl. Cover with cling film and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
