Why You’ll Love It

It’s easy to make. Other almond pulp recipes will sometimes require you to dry the almond pulp overnight, but this hummus recipe is made with the wet pulp– so you can make it immediately after making a batch of almond milk, without any extra steps.

It tastes amazing. If you love traditional hummus, you’ll love this version, too.

It’s easy to customize. If you want to add in roasted red peppers, or prefer less garlic, it’s easy to adjust this recipe to your liking. You can taste and make alterations as you go!

It’s properly combined. If food combining is important to you, this recipe falls into the nut/seed category for easier digestion. It will also help to reduce food waste!

It’s bean-free. If you have trouble digesting beans, this recipe is a delicious alternative without using chickpeas. It’s inspired by my famous Zucchini Hummus, which is also bean-free.

Ingredients You’ll Need

The base of this recipe is leftover almond pulp, so you’ll need to make a batch of homemade almond milk first. If you’d like to add in any flavors to your almond milk, such as chocolate or vanilla, be sure to add in the flavorings AFTER making the milk, so the pulp will have a neutral flavor.

When shopping for tahini, different brands will give have a different flavor, so you might need to taste test a few to see which you like best.

I recommend using Soom or Whole Foods 365 brand if you prefer a nutty flavor with a runny consistency. Or, Artisana brand has a thick consistency with a mild, neutral flavor.

How to Make Almond Pulp Hummus

1. Prepare the almond milk.

This recipe works best with relatively fresh almond pulp, so be sure to follow my recipe for making homemade almond pulp. After you’ve strained the pulp, you can use it for this recipe. (I like to make these recipes back-to-back, so I only have to clean my blender once.)

Note: Leftover almond pulp can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days, if you are not quite ready to make your hummus after making a batch of almond milk.

2. Blend the hummus.

In your blender, add the almond pulp, tahini, lemon juice, cumin, garlic, salt, olive oil, and 2 tablespoons of water. Secure the lid, and start blending. If the mixture isn’t blending smoothly, add another 2 tablespoons of water and blend again.

Stop and scrape down the sides of the blender, if needed, to help everything blend smoothly.

  2. EXCELLENT! I just started making my own almond milk and hate to see food go to waste. I tried making crackers from a recipe i found but it just wasn’t going well. This, this though is amazing! Tastes just like hummus. You’d never know it was almonds! This is for sure going to be a staple lunch now! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Love this recipe! I add a little more EVOO & salt, plus a little Tabasco sauce. Finally, I pulse in some sun-dried tomatoes. Everyone seems to love it!

  4. Delicious!! Finally a way to use almond milk pulp immediately! This is such a great way to benefit from every last bit of those pricey little almonds! Made almond milk… found your hummus recipe and launched right into making some tahini because I was so intrigued and inspired by your recipe. Thanks for posting!
