3 cups raw pecans
3-4 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sea salt
water, as needed, to correct consistency (I didn't need to add water)
Place pecans and garlic in bowl of food processor. Process until mixture is reduced to small chunks. Add olive oil, vinegar and salt. Process and slowly add water, a few tablespoons at a time, until a thick hummus-like consistency is achieved. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover and chill thoroughly. Serve chilled with pita chips or vegetables, and makes a great addition to a wrap.
My notes: This is a totally different take on hummus since there is no garbanzo beans or tahini, and it uses apple cider vinegar instead of lemon juice. SO GOOD! It makes me want to have a party just so I can serve this and see the response. :) I think it would also make awesome tea sandwiches on white bread with cream cheese on one side and pecan hummus on the other.
