Not often that you’ll find a paleo recipe on a plant based blog. But, my friend Diane shared this non-bean hummus recipe with me and it was fantastic. (She said it came from Cooking the Paleo Way, and I modified it to suit me.) I think it tastes remarkably like hummus – you would never guess the ingredients!
- 1 cup cashews
- 2 medium zucchini, roughly chopped
- 2/3 cup tahini
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 Tbsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp salt, or to taste
In a food processor, grind the cashews to a powder. Add the remaining ingredients and let the motor run until fully pureed. Serve as you wish – as a dip, topping falafel or veggie burgers, or however you want! It makes a lot. I froze two containers of it to pull out for a later date if I’m entertaining and need a hummus to serve or making falafel or veggie burgers and need a sauce!
