Vegan Cashew Hummus Recipe

Vegan Cashew Hummus Recipe

It’s no secret that we vegans love a bit of hummus! It’s tasty, easy to make and can be used in a whole range of dishes.

Typically made with chickpeas, we’ve switched them out for cashews to make a vegan cashew hummus that is both energy-boosting and rich in protein and iron.

Cashew nuts are rich in essential minerals and vitamins, in particular, they are a good source of copper, magnesium, and manganese, which are all nutrients that are important for energy production, brain health, immunity, and bone health.

This cashew hummus is easy to make and handy to have in the fridge to enjoy as a post-workout snack.

This cashew hummus recipe is so simple to make – the only part that takes time is soaking your cashew nuts.

Once they’ve soaked for at least two hours to ensure a smooth texture when blended, simply pop the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until the ingredients are combined.

We like to leave ours a little chunky to give it a more traditional hummus texture, but you can blend it until completely smooth if you’d prefer.

Once the cashew hummus is blended, transfer it to an airtight container and refrigerate.

Serve with warm pitta bread or vegan crackers with a sprinkling of paprika and a drizzle of chilli oil for an easy vegan snack.

This cashew hummus is a great energy booster, making it ideal for a healthy snack when you need a boost.
