Hummus is so darn tasty and makes for the perfect savory snack served with fresh veggies, raw buckwheat or gluten-free pita chips, flax crackers, or even as an accompaniment to avocado on sprouted toast. On a raw or even paleo diet hummus is often blacklisted due to the fact that it’s made from a base of garbanzo beans. However, such is not the case with this tasty recipe by Elaina Love of Pure Joy Planet. This classic recipe uses raw zucchini as the base, and is made extra creamy with a blend of cold pressed olive oil and raw tahini butter. Her ratio of spices is perfection. This is a must-try recipe!
2 medium zucchini, chopped
3 garlic cloves
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup lemon juice

3/4 cup brown sesame seeds soaked 2-4 hours then rinsed
3/4 cup raw tahini (sesame butter)
