Play around with the vegetables to suit your own taste. Including something juicy helps to thin out the consistency, but if you prefer to omit the tomato, just add a little water or extra lemon juice to the mix.

  • 1 c. almonds, organic, raw
  • 1/2 c. pumpkin seeds or pepitas, organic
  • 1 med. carrot, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 c. broccoli, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 med. bell pepper, red, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 med. tomatoes, red, fresh, organic
  • 2 garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 c. cilantro, bunch, fresh, organic
  • 2 tbs. tahini, organic
  • 1 tbs. lemon juice, pure, organic
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste

Soak almonds for 6-10 hours, and drain. Soak pumpkin seeds for 4-6 hours, and drain.

Combine almonds, pumpkin seeds, and carrots in a food processor and process until well ground.

Add the remaining ingredients and continue to process, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally, until a smooth paste forms. If needed for texture or taste, add more lemon juice, tahini, or water.

Scrape into a serving bowl and chill until ready to serve. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Enjoy!
