This recipe is a definite favorite! Its hearty flavor compliments everything from salads to bean dishes. It’s delicious to use as an alternative to mayonnaise in sandwiches and wraps.
In a blender:
1 ½ c. toasted almonds
1 c. water
2-4 garlic cloves, raw or roasted
Blend on high for 90 seconds or until smooth.
2 T lemon juice
1 t salt
Turn blender on low power and stream in slowly:
1-2 c olive oil or grapeseed oil
Mixture will thicken and almost solidify but be careful not to over-emulsify or it might get too thin.
You'll never think of mayonnaise again...
We’re nuts about almonds!
