Macadamia Nut Hummus

Start with this hearty, base low carb hummus recipe and change it up (10 ways) for lunches, games, parties, picnics and social events outside the home.

This very low carb hummus recipe has half the net carbs per serving, and is healthier than chickpea-based versions, with the addition of calcium-rich tahini, alkalizing lemon and stimulating spices.

 

Hummus From Leftovers

This recipe makes a delightfully simple, creamy and bright low carb hummus. Taste-testers agreed: it tasted like chickpea hummus. It’s the real deal.

Raw macadamia hummus may also be made with pulp left over from making nut milk.

Use nut pulp from almonds, Brazil nuts, macadamias, cashews, hazelnuts, or sunflower, sesame or pumpkin seeds – all work well with this base recipe.

Try adding leftover roasted veggies and spices from a prior meal.
