Raw Zucchini Hummus

Now that I am working in Falls Church again, my favorite lunch time spot is Meat in a Box (funny name, awesome food!).  The owner is so friendly and every time I come in he gives me free hummus.  I’m addicted!  I wanted to try making my own version at home but after doing some research I learned that commercially canned chick peas are heavy in sodium and absent of their natural enzymes because they are already pre-cooked.  Also — they are hard to digest!  No thank you!

This hummus made out of zucchini is much healthier and JUST as delicious!  In fact, I made this for a party of carnivores and the whole thing was gobbled up in an instant!

Raw Zucchini Hummus

1 large zucchini
1/2 cup raw tahini (I made this in my mini blender by blending un-toasted sesame seeds and olive oil together)
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Cumin
1 Large Garlic Clove
Sprinkle of Paprika

Combine all ingredients in blender until smooth. This will have a slightly thinner texture than chickpea hummus.
