    Cookgirl's Note:

    If you can't find toasted/roasted tahini, it's okay to use regular tahini. Recipe from LaCucinadiKait.com and modified in a local publication. Option: when preparing the test recipe, I set aside a small amount of the zucchini puree replacing the Spanish smoked paprika with sumac.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a grill to high. Use an oil-soaked paper towel held with tongs to lightly oil the grill grates.
    2. 2
      Trim the ends from the zucchini, then slice it in half lengthwise.
    3. 3
      If the seeds are large and watery, use a melon baller or small spoon to scrape out and discard most of the seeds from the center of each half.
    4. 4
      It’s not critical to get them all. If the inside of the zucchini appears firm and the seeds small, you don’t need to scrape them out.
    5. 5
      Place the zucchini on the grill, cut side up, then reduce heat to low.
    6. 6
      Cook for 10 minutes, or until just lightly browned and starting to get tender.
    7. 7
      Set aside to cool.
    8. 8
      When the zucchini has cooled enough to handle, place it in a food processor.
    9. 9
      Add the roasted tahini, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, smoked paprika and salt. Process for 1 minute, or until very smooth.
    10. 10
      The hummus can be served immediately, or chilled to serve later. Bring to room temperature before serving though.
    11. 11
      Note: this hummus will thicken slightly as it chills.

      Smokey goodness! We loved how the smoky from the grilling of the zucchini really came through. I used fresh carrot chips and pit chips as dippers with DH and myself really enjoying the way the zucchini and carrot complemented each other. This is a wonderful altternative to regular hummus and a treat we will be enjoying again, thanks for the post.
