    Default Zucchini Hummus

    Not sure if this type of recipe has already been submitted, but this is one of my favs. I can't wait until I get to OWL 3 so I can nosh on this once again! A great way to get in those veggies..

    2 Raw Zucchini (peeled, chopped)
    3/4 to 1 cup of tahini (raw or jarred)
    Fresh lemon juice to taste
    2-3 garlic cloves
    Extra Virgin Olive Oil drizzled to taste and consistency
    Kosher/Himalayan Salt/Sea salt to taste
    Cumin to taste
    Paprika to garnish (I use smoked paprika)

    I just pop everything (except the paprika) in the processor and taste as I go. I don't even adhere to exact measurements. Go with your personal taste and texture preferences!

    Experiment by substituting the tahini with a tablespoon or two of toasted sesame oil. That substitution will make it Induction friendly.

    My pleasure Liv!

    Hi Megs! My concern would be that it might be too runny without the tahini. The large amount of tahini is what gives this hummus its thickness. I love where you're going and your thinking though. Is there perhaps another Induction friendly sub you can think of? I am stumped!

    And being that my husband is doing a longer induction, I would love to learn of a different alternative so he can have this!

    Is the zucchini raw or cooked?

    If it is raw, then salt it. The salt will remove any excess moisture.

    If the zucchini is cooked, I would suggest roasting it. Again to remove the excess moisture.

    But give it a shot and see what happens. If it's too runny, add chicken stock to it and serve it as soup.

    Sounds delicious! Try subbing mayonnaise and/or a hard boiled egg or two for the tahini and some sesame oil for flavor to make it induction friendly.

    My apologies- the zucchini is supposed to be raw. I will edit my post.

    Thank you!
