Recipe: Zucchini Hummus

by | Oct 12, 2013 | Recipe | 0 comments

I have been hoeing into this delicious dip I recently made using Chris Kresser’s Paleo Hummus recipe. I’ve made a few adjustments to the original recipe to better suit my palate – though the original is also delish. Here’s my version of this yummy snack:

What you need:

2 medium zucchini, roughly chopped
3/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 medium-large clove garlic
1 teaspoon ground cumin or coriander
1 teaspoon sea salt

How to prepare it:

Put everything together in a blender, with the zucchini chunks at the bottom. Puree. We have a whizzy Optimum 9400, so it takes about 2 minutes!

Serve in a bowl and garnish with fresh parsley and/or paprika. Use veggie sticks and brown rice crackers to scoop that tasty mix into your mouth. Enjoy!

This dish will suit you if you follow a Paleo style diet, can’t eat gluten, don’t do dairy, are pescetarian, vegetarian, vegan or raw-food only. Happily, it will also work if you have an ‘eat everything’ food philosophy!

This ‘hummus’ is not only yummy, it’s also nutrient-dense, full of good fats, calcium, potassium, folate and even a little vitamin C!
