Encouraged by the success of my last raw venture, I took a page from Miss Gena and made her Raw Zucchini Hummus. You can find the recipe here. I didn't have sesame seeds, so I followed the modifications listed. The only thing I did differently was the addition of some minced garlic. Garlic makes everything better! I was a little leery of hummus minus the chickpeas, but...the verdict?
Soooo good! I questioned whether or not to leave the peel on the zucchini, but as you can see, I left it on and it turned out quite smooth and even.I think I might cut the tahini down just a smidge, but overall I was totally impressed with the taste and texture.


  1. Hey Emily-

    I love the name of your blog! Too cute : ) I'm quite the food experimenter myself. I've dabbled in raw, vegan, and now I'm into eating red meats again! I love Gena's recipies. I recently made her Guacamole...yummy!! I just started a nutrition/wellness blog check it out!


  2. Yum! I have never heard of zucchini hummus, but I will surely try it now!

  3. Wow that hummus looks great! I've seen it without the chickpeas but have been weary.. guess I'll have to try it!
