The first time I ate at Green Vegetarian Cuisine in San Antonio, I came home wishing I had some more of their pecan hummus. It was SOOOO good! I thought, what the heck, I'll see if I can find a recipe for pecan hummus online. The very first response in the Google list was for Green Vegetarian Cuisine's Raw Pecan Hummus! Man was I excited, but for some reason I didn't make it right then or any time since.
I made another trip to the restaurant last month, and they weren't serving it currently since pecan's weren't in season. Total disappointment.
Today I wanted something snack-y but healthy, and I remembered I had a bag of pecans stored in my freezer. Slapped those babies in the food processor with some garlic, apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and sea salt. (The recipe calls for water as needed for consistency, but I didn't need any.)
Whizzed it till it was a nice hummus consistency.
Then I cut up some vegetables to dip into it.
This was my lunch. It was REALLY easy and REALLY good! If you like pecans, you have to try this.
This is a totally different take on hummus since it doesn't contain garbanzo beans or tahini, and it uses apple cider vinegar instead of lemon juice. SO GOOD!
It makes me want to have a party just so I can serve this and see the response. :) I think it would also make awesome tea sandwiches on white bread with cream cheese on one side and pecan hummus on the other.
I'm so excited that there's more left in the fridge!
I've posted the recipe at What's Cookin' 4 Miles North of Nowhere.
