How To Make This Recipe: Step-By-Step Instructions
Here is how to make this recipe and I'll show you how easy it is 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
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.
