Zucchini Hummus







I fully credit Deborah on RawFu as she posted the original recipe on her blog Rawvelations

The original recipe was posted to Raw Fu and accredited to Jennifer Cornbleet’s raw food made easy.

I (Stacey) made a few changes and this is what I ended up with:

2 zucchini, peeled and grated. Roll the grated zucchini in paper towels or clean towel and press hard to remove excess moisture or just squish it in your hands in snowball-sized batches)
4 tbs raw tahini
4 tbs fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cayenne
3/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp of olive oil

Take all ingredients except the zucchini and toss them into the food processor with the ’s’ blade and blend together. Add zucchini and process until desired consistency.

This was so so so good! Better than regular hummus, in my opinion. I took this to a pot luck and everyone who tried it loved it (as far as I know!) This will definitely be a staple in my house.

Stacey, the last two times I made this hummus, I threw in a handful of parsley into the food processor at the end and pulsed it a dozen or so times. It took it to a whole 'nother level! Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
