I’m not sure if I can get away with calling this tasty dip hummus, but it’s close enough so hummus it is! If you’re looking for a way to make a raw food hummus, look no further! Zucchini saves the day. Aren’t they just the most versatile veggie, well a close-second to cauliflower anyways. This Raw Zucchini Hemp Seed Hummus is vegan and since it’s made without chickpeas, it’s paleo-friendly.

You can actually make raw hummus with raw, sprouted chickpeas but that takes a day or two and I needed hummus asap! I figured zucchinis were close enough to beans to work as the base and I could fill in the rest with hemp seeds. It worked like a charm and a delicious garlicky, lemony, tahini-y dip was born!
You only need about 5 minutes to whip this up so it’s perfect for busy evenings. Basically, prepare all the ingredients, throw them in the blender and presto – Raw Zucchini Hemp Seed Hummus.Print
