Grab your carrots. Zucchini Hummus is happening today friends!
In case you haven’t noticed, I kind of like hummus and dips. Like a lot! Black bean hummus, cilantro jalapeño hummus, roasted red pepper hummus, no bean pumpkin hummus, herby edamame hummus, garlic parmesan hummus.
Did I miss any? Oh yeah! Sweet potato peanut butter hummus. OMG. Can’t forget that one! I could eat it by the spoon!
Beans, no beans, tahini, no tahini. I’ll gladly dive into any one of them. I don’t discriminate. They’re all SO. DARN. GOOD!
There’s something fun about dipping too. Am I right? It makes you feel like you’re a kid again. And let me just be honest here. I probably would not eat that many vegetables if I didn’t have something delicious to smother them in like this Zucchini Hummus. But we’ll get to that in a minute.
You see there are certain staples I make every week or two to keep the refrigerator stocked so I don’t live off nuts (<-has been done) or tempted to buy unhealthy snacks at the store. Pancakes, egg muffins and hummus are my lifeline!
Why do not buy hummus? Well, for starters not all of them are gluten free. Yes, gluten is sneaky. It’s hidden in so many foods. You need to read labels carefully to be sure the product wasn’t made on equipment that processes wheat either, i.e. contamination. YUCK!
I also don’t know if you’ve noticed but most store bought hummus (and other packaged foods) have ascorbic acid added to them to prolong shelf life and that ascorbic acid isn’t the same kind you find in Vitamin C.
It’s usually derived from corn which is almost always GMO so I try to make my own whenever I can. Yes, I do live a life and sometimes that life gets in the way of me and my blender.
Speaking of blender, you better grab yours because you’re about to become addicted to this hum-believable Zucchini Hummus! How do you like that?
There’s no beans in this hummus making it totally Paleo friendly. Just a bit of tahini and olive oil and Zucchini Hummus is born. Okay, so there’s a few other things in there but nothing too complicated. You know I don’t do complicated.
