"Raw" Beanless Zucchini Hummus


I eat soooo much hummus. I know for a lower-carb diet, it’s not the best.  So I found this recipe from Clean Eating and I love it.  Low-carb hummus.  yum. now I just have to avoid dipping BREAD in it!

  • 6 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 pinches cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup raw tahini
  • 1 cup sesame or sunflower seeds or pine nuts
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzle
  • Fresh parsley, minced for garnish


  1. Place all ingredients, except oil and parsley, into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth or to desired consistency. Drizzle with oil and garnish with parsley. Complement it with crudités, raw flax crackers or whole-grain pita bread. You can also spread it on sandwiches or mix it with salads.
