For all you know, I filled this bowl with a clay face mask and told you it was hummus. It IS hummus. Of the chickpea-less variety.
This recipe came from Fit Foodie Denise Costello. Denise is a RN and the brains behind The Energized Body in Winchester, MA. Denise runs a fantastic Nutrition Bootcamp group out of her home in Winchester. She also makes some seriously delicious dark chocolate goji bark.
I first tried this recipe in the kitchen of Denise herself. I was honored to give a Paleo Nutrition talk to the ladies of her advanced Nutrition Bootcamp.
This stuff is crazy-good. I made it for the Crossfit H2O 1st Anniversary Cookout over the weekend, and it was a hit.
Raw Chickpea-less Hummus (from the Energized Body, adapted from Kimberly Snyder)
2 zucchinis chopped
3/4 cup tahini
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (it took me 1 1/2 lemons)
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 ½ tsp sea salt
Serve with baby carrots, celery, red pepper slices…any crispy veggie.
