  • 1 Cup Dry Roasted Macadamia nuts Plus 1/4 Cup chopped
  • 1 15 Oz. Can Garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 Cup Tahini
  • 3 Tbsp. Crushed pineapple with juice, from a can
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 Tsp. Kosher salt
  • ½ Tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 2-6 Tbsp. Water
  • Raw cucumber slices, jicama slices, tomatoes and carrots for dipping
  • Crackers


  • Add the cup of macadamia nuts, rinsed garbanzo beans and minced garlic to your food processor. Pulse until you have small little pieces that are starting to stick together.
  • Add the other ingredients (except water) and puree for about 3 minutes until it is creamy.
  • While the processor is running, slowly drizzle in the water, one tablespoon at a time until you get the consistency you desire. I like it thick and creamy and easy to dip. Taste. If needed, add more salt and pepper. Top with the chopped macadamia nuts.
  • Serve with your favorite raw veggies and crackers for a fabulous starter course, snack or light lunch.
