zucchini hummus

This recipe has pretty much changed my mind that hummus can only be made and delicious with chickpeas.   Since I consciously limit my carbohydrates for my overall health it was a thrilling miracle to find a non-bean hummus recipe.  And this is the one and only recipe you'll ever need...

This is I Breathe...I'm Hungry's recipe that I slightly adapted.  I was fascinated by the idea and am so glad I tried it.  I love that it 1) uses up our big zucchinis and 2) is an incredible spread/dip for just 2 net carbs per 2 TBSP.  Super healthy too.

You've got to try it.

zucchini hummus 

4 cups chopped zucchini

3/4 cups tahini paste

1/4 cup lemon juice concentrate

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tsp minced garlic

1.5 teaspoons salt

1 TBSP ground cumin

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.  Dip with veggies, chips, pork rinds, or use as a spread.

And if you still need ideas to use up for extra zucchinis, our number one favorite still remains to be these chocolate zucchini spice cupcakes...er...muffins when uniced.
