Zucchini Hummus (vegan, low carb, high protein, keto)

Zucchini Hummus lemons & petals

I love hummus!  I can eat an entire tub of hummus!  But the chick peas are not easy on the digestive system plus it’s a big load on the pancreas which leads to a huge insulin surge.  You want to enjoy your hummus without any of these effects?  Keep reading!


What you will need:

  • 1 cup diced organic zucchini
  • 1/3 cup raw organic tahini
  • 1 TBS organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 TBS nutritional yeast (optional but highly recommended!)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 jalapeno (optional for heat)
  • juice of one small lemon

Blend all ingredient in a food processor or blender.  And that is it!  So easy and so delicious!  I swear this is the best hummus EVER!
