Almond & Hemp Hummus with Roasted Wattleseed

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

When the fridge is full of fresh produce our go to meal is often a nourish bowl with crispy lettuce, celery, spring onions, lots of avocado, roasted vegetables, sauerkraut topped with some hummus & our roast beetroot dip. This is an alternative hummus I created to add a greater variety of nutrients & flavours to our life! Recently I have been experimenting with indigenous foods and was surprised at how well the roasted wattleseeds compliment the other ingredients in this hummus. Let me know what you think.
