When I shared my turmeric falafel recipe, I mentioned serving it with two types of hummus, a conventional chickpea hummus, and an even lighter raw zucchini hummus.
With certain grains and legumes being allowed on the candida diet, I am allowed homemade conventional hummus. I don't want to overdo the quantity of legumes that I eat at once, though. Plus, I prefer to pack as many vegetables as I can into my meals. That's why zucchini hummus is so great; it helps me eat more vegetables, and it really tastes great!
I might even say that it's one of my favorite recipes lately!!
It's hard to believe that raw zucchini can be blended into such a smooth texture, but it really does work well.
Raw Zucchini Hummus
- Peel and cut your zucchini into medium sized chunks and place in a food processor.
- Add in all of the other ingredients, except for the red pepper.
- Process until smooth.
- Taste it and add in extra salt, spices, or lemon as desired.
- I like to separate half of the hummus before adding in the roasted red peppers, allowing me to have both types ready at once.
- Add in a few strips of roasted red pepper to the rest, and blend until smooth.
Not sure how to make and peel roasted red peppers?
It's easy, and tomorrow I will show you how!
