This does not have chickpeas in it. (my husband cannot have them) It is from a raw cookbook, and is supposed to taste very similar.
- 2 zucchini, peeled and chopped
- 3⁄4 cup tahini
- 1⁄2 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves, peeled (I usually do 3)
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1⁄2 tablespoon ground cumin
- Combine all ingredients and puree in a blender or processor until smooth.
This was marvelous!!! Almost exactly like hummus & could definitely pass for it; however, this was much more fresh & smooth! I did use more than 2 zucchini because ours were small...probably 4 of the small ones. I also cut the salt back a lot - we just aren't huge salt people. I will make this again & again using different variations....red bell pepper, cayenne, jalapenos...oh I can't wait!! Thanks for a winner JenPo!!
I would love to try this come the summer zucchini glut, but I lack confidence because it doesn't say if its 2 of the 4-6 inch zucchini grocery stores carry, 2 of the 8-10 inch zucchini I'd harvest by choice, or 2 of the big ones that got lost under the leaves for a while. :) A measurement in cups of chopped zucchini would be very helpful. Please?
This is great!! I ate it with carrot sticks to be raw and DD (toddler) munched it down with rice crackers to be gluten free. I would totally like to try this with DH. It does really taste like hummus yet fresher and better.
