Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini peeled and chopped, about 4 cups total
  • 1/2 cup raw tahini
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup cold pressed olive oil*
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cumin

Instructions

  • Blend ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth, adding more salt and lemon juice to taste if you like. Don’t blend too long or the friction of the blades will cook your hummus.

Notes

Since this is a cold recipe, you could always substitute flax oil for the olive oil. Not sure how it would taste, but I can imagine it would be quite good!
