Bean-free, nut-free hummus (Raw and Gluten Free)

Introduction

Made with zucchini instead of beans or nuts, this hummus is light and fluffy but still tastes authentic! Made with zucchini instead of beans or nuts, this hummus is light and fluffy but still tastes authentic!
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1/2 large zucchini
    1/2 clove garlic, or dash garlic salt
    1 - 1 1/2 tbsp tahini
    up to 1 tbsp lemon juice ( to taste)
    1/4 tsp cumin
    dash cayenne
    dash sea salt
    1/8 - 1/4 tsp paprika

Directions

Chop the zucchini into chunks so the processor can handle it better.
Place all ingredients except tahini in food processor.
Pulse until a fine texture is achieved. Drizzle tahini over everything (you may want to scrape the sides down, first), and then pulse until it's smooth and creamy.

Serve with your favorite dippers, such as carrots, tomatoes, celery, or do what I did and wrap some in a swiss chard leaf! Yummmmmm....

Serves 2, about 1/2 cup each

  • Nice recipe. Mine came out a little wet, but that might be the water in the zucchini. I did add a touch of olive oil for a more hummus taste. I ate it with homemade flax crackers. Thanks! - 1/17/12
