Love the idea of using macadamia nuts as an addition to a hummus recipe.
The hummus recipe is one of the “Trio of dips Australian style” with the Macadamia Pesto and Macadamia Tapenade recipes on my to make list.
In a food processor, process and purée the following ingredients:
1/2 cup macadamias, roasted
2 cups chickpeas, drained
2 tablespoons macadamia oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons water ( I used liquid reserved from drained chickpeas)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
10 medium basil leaves
salt and pepper to taste
