I created this homemade almond hummus because I was SO craving an almond hummus that I use to buy every weekend when I lived in Encinitas. It’s SO easy to make and great for people who don’t digest legumes well.

My favorite way to spend a Sunday morning was at the farmers market. And… my favorite stop along the way was a booth called ‘Bitchin Sauce.’ Have you heard of it? Well if not, it’s exactly what you think it is. Epic, insanely good dipping sauce, that is insanely healthy!!! I created this recipe in hopes of re-creating something amazing that I could have in IDAHO where I can’t find this epic sauce. And, I think I might have stumbled upon something amazing. Check out my recipe below!

Farmer’s Market Raw Almond Hummus aka ‘Bitchin Sauce’

3/4 cup raw almonds (soaked overnight)
3/4 cup spring water
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup avocado oil
1/4 cup lemon juice (about 1.5 lemons)
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 cloves garlic
2 tsp bragg liquid aminos or coconut aminos
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp paprika
1 handful fresh organic cilantro


Place all ingredients in VitaMix. Slowly blend for one minute. Turn the dial up to high, and continue to blend for 1-2 minutes or until smooth and creamy.

Store in the refrigerator or freezer. Sauce may separate so just stir up when serving.
