Clean Eating Raw Zucchini Hummus…made with clean, real food ingredients and it’s raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and paleo-friendly.
A Raw Zucchini Hummus recipe is very, very important, especially if you are following a 100% raw food and/or paleo diet.
It’s because most hummus recipes use garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas) which are neither raw or paleo-approved.
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 in either a good food processor or a Vitamix.
I like this version of hummus because it is really light and you can’t even taste the flavor or the zucchini – if you don’t really care for it or are trying to serve to non-veggie eaters!
It has just the right blend of lemon juice and olive oil and the cumin adds a nice flavor. Just cut up some fresh peppers to add a colorful addition to 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!
