Walnut Butter

Submitted by: RDEPASS

Introduction

As good as it is good for you! As good as it is good for you!
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    15.5 oz can Garbanzo Beans (Chick peas)
    2 Tbsp Tahini (Sesame paste)
    2 Tbsp Walnut oil
    1 tsp ground cumin


Directions

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth consistency.

Use as a spread in place of peanut butter. Or use as a dip for crackers, fruit (apples, bananas) or veggies (celery, carrots). Spread on a pita and add your favorite salad greens for a delicious and incredibly nutritious wrap.

Refrigerate in tightly sealed container.

Note: Walnut oil is one of the "good" oils so don't let the fat content worry you.

  • I really liked this - very nice change from traditional hummus. I found it a bit difficult to get smooth - I had to add a little water and still found it a little dry. - 2/12/08
