Hummus (low carb)

This is a low carb variation of hummus that tastes just as good as the real thing! The regular can of chick peas is substituted with raw zucchini. To make a regular hummus, just switch back in the chick peas.

Recipe from: https://www.ibreatheimhungry.com/2012/03/low-carb-hummus-bean-free-2.html

Servings: 4? Makes a lot of hummus.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups zucchini, peeled & chopped
  • 3/4 cups tahini
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 2 tsp kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin

Directions:

  1. Combine all the ingredients into a blender and blend until thick and smooth. Taste ad adjust seasonings to your preference.
  2. Can garnish with paprika and a drizzle of olive oil

Notes:

  • To make this “full carb”, just take out the zucchinis and add in a can of drained chickpeas.
  • You can modify this recipe easily as you would a regular hummus recipe.
  • Try roasted garlic instead or roasted red peppers and parmesan.
  • Try adding in a can of drained pickled beet root slices, blended and mixed in.
