Finding a hummus recipe made without chickpeas can be challenging, but I have a healthy plant-based Raw Zucchini Hummus recipe that's a perfect replacement for traditional hummus.
Raw Vegan Zucchini Hummus
This recipe is an excellent substitution to traditional hummus and is really easy to make and use with your fresh summer zucchini.
It can be made in a manner of minutes with a Vitamix or even a good food processor.
I love this plant-based chickpea-free version of hummus because it is really light and you can't even taste the flavor of the zucchini - which is great if you don't really care for the taste or are will be serving it to non-veggie eaters!
It has just the right blend of lemon juice and avocado oil and the cumin adds a nice flavor.
Serve it with cucumbers, slices of red bell peppers or even some gluten-free crackers and this healthy dip and it will be gone in minutes!
And, it's raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and paleo-friendly too!
How To Make Raw Zucchini Hummus | Step-By-Step Instructions
I'll show you how you can make this plant-based chickpea-free hummus in less than 5 minutes with step-by-step instructions below!
Step 1: Prep The Zucchini
You'll need to take a quick minute to peel the zucchini and then cut it into cubes before adding it to your Vitamix.
Step 2: Prepare The Zucchini Hummus
The only other thing you need to do is add all the ingredients to your Vitamix and blend until everything is creamy and smooth.
Take a taste and adjust the seasonings if you prefer.
Step 3: Store The Zucchini Hummus
Store your hummus in an air-tight BPA-free container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
I like to use a glass mason jar to store mine in but any non-toxic storage container will work.
Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions for Raw Vegan Zucchini Hummus
Zucchini. As mentioned earlier, you want to peel the zucchini before adding them to your Vitamix. Also, cutting them into small pieces, like a cube shape, will help them blend easier.
Tahini. I love to make homemade tahini and you can too in about 5 minutes using just a food processor. If you're in a hurry or don't want to make homemade tahini, you can always use organic store-bought tahini.
Lemon Juice. Using freshly squeezed lemon juice will give you a more intense lemon flavor and nutrients, but you can also use an organic store-bought lemon juice.
Avocado Oil. This is my healthy oil of preference, but you can substitute it with organic extra-virgin olive oil without affecting the flavor profile.
Himalayan Pink Salt. This is my preferred salt but you can always use sea salt as a substitution.
Vitamix. If you don't have a Vitamix, you should be able to make it in a regular blender or even a food processor since it's made with "soft" ingredients but I haven't tested it with either of those.
