No Bean Zucchini Hummus.

So, I’ve been on a bit of a hummus kick lately.

But, having just finished a cleanse traditional hummus made with garbanzo beans can be a little bit heavy and dense in a belly that feels light and clean.

Enter, zucchini. Not only is this little veggie abundant and in season right now, but it makes for a delicious and light version of hummus that doesn’t leave you feeling bloated and uncomfortable!


  • 2 – 3 zucchini, peeled
  • 3/4 cup raw tahini (this can be pricey so if you can’t find raw, don’t beat yourself up about it!)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 Tbs ground cumin
  • optional: 2 cloves garlic


  1. In a food processor or high-speed blender, combine all of the ingredients and blend until thick and smooth
  2. Serve in your favorite dish (I got mind from Cafe Gratitude up in San Francisco! I hear they’re opening a new loation in Venice off of Rose Street…) and enjoy with cucumber, peppers, celery, carrot sticks, or wrap it up with your favorite veggies, some greens and maybe a bit of avocado?
