A skeleton hummus dip surrounded by blue tortilla chips

I love this festive idea for a Halloween food table!

We created a delicious tahini-free hummus, substituting cashew butter made in the NutraMilk for tahini, because for some, tahini has that touch of bitterness that not everybody loves and cashew has a wonderful nutty and slightly sweet flavor that is perfect for hummus. Enjoy!


For Tahini-free hummus dip

A clear glass bowl of raw cashews
  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup cashew butter made with the NutraMilk

  • mini bell peppers (multi-colored)
  • cherry tomatoes
  • black olives
  • almonds
