Live Food Humus

Here is a yummy Humus from the Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine DVD. This DVD explains the self-composting button we all have and what to do to stop it. This DVD is a great introduction to Gabriel Cousen's life-work and has video instructions on some good recipes.

I soak and sprout about 6 cups of almonds at a time so I nearly always have some on hand. I ran out of lemons and substituted 2 tablespoons of lime for lemon juice and it tasted fine to me. I also used ground white pepper instead of black because I was out of black. I understand white peppercorns are the ripe version of peppercorns.

Amazingly, I managed to make this in my old regular blender by blending about 1/3rd at a time and stopping and scraping down often.

The kids liked it and had some with regular crackers, sliced cucumbers and sliced zucchini. This would be a great pate' for lettuce rollups or nori rolls.
