Raw Zucchini Hummus Recipe

Photo Credit: Choosing Raw

Here is a great recipe for zucchini hummus from Choosing Raw. Just using olive oil and zucchini yielded a mix that can be too thin to be hummus, so it has been thickened by adding raw sesame seeds in addition to the tahini, and voila: an amazingly rich, creamy, and tasty blend! Here’s the recipe:

Raw Zucchini Hummus (yields over 3 cups; you can easily cut this recipe in half)
2 zucchini, chopped
½ cup lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1 ½ tsp cumin
1 cup raw tahini (the Artisana brand is nice; substitute regular tahini if you need to)
4 tbsp olive oil
½ cup raw sesame seeds
Blender (Vitamix) instructions:
Put all ingredients in your blender and whip away to a rich perfection!
Food processor instructions:
Same as above. You may have a hard time blending the sesame seeds, so I recommend soaking them for a few hours first, halving the recipe, and stopping frequently to scape the bowl. You can also omit the seeds entirely, but in that case I also recommend omitting the olive oil to keep a thick consistency.
This is  a super delicious raw, vegan hummus that tastes amazing. Enjoy!
