Raw Hummus-Inspired Dip Recipe

Hello my lovelies :) I hope everyone is having a nice day ♥ I just finished eating a delicious vegetable platter accompanied by a tasty hummus-inspired broccoli dip... it was scrumptious! The original recipe (inspired by Fully Raw Kristina, she is so good) calls for zucchini, which I did not have, so I substituted it with broccoli instead - still really good but with more of a "green" taste lol :) Recipe below!

Raw Hummus Recipe 
1 head of broccoli (or 1-2 zucchinis) I also want to try this with cauliflower - it would give it a more traditional 'beige' hummus appearance 
1 cup lemon juice 
4 tbsp raw tahini paste (or 1 cup unhulled sesame seeds)
4 cloves garlic
Pinch of cumin 
Pinch of himalayan sea salt 

Step 1: Place broccoli florets (or zucchini / cauliflower) in a food processor and pulse till it becomes a light fluffy texture 

Step 2: Blend the lemon juice, tahini, garlic, cumin and himalayan salt in a high speed blender to make a creamy paste

Step 3: Pour the paste in the food processor with the broccoli, pulse a few times until it's mixed well 

I served this with fresh celery, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, yellow and red bell peppers!

Super easy and super tasty! Have you guys experimented with making raw hummus? Or any other raw recipes? Share with me below in the comments! Always love hearing from you :) XOXO

  18. Hi Annie! I'm new to your channel and my 13 year old daughter and I have been loving watching your videos! You're an amazing young woman! Beautiful inside and out! I've been watching a lot of your new videos and checking out your blog. I have health issues too and have done a TON of research and your are RIGHT on by adding the organic, cage free eggs back into your diet. Good for you!

  19. HI annie!! there is no Hummus in your pseudo hummus,so i think you should call this recipe brocoli cream or something else cz hummus means chickpea in arabic so no chickpea=no hummus :) but i still like the recipe and would love to try it.
