Zucchini Hummus - Real Plans

Is zucchini hummus even possible? With roots in Egyptian cuisine, the word hummus translates into “chickpeas.” As you might have guessed, chickpeas play a starring role in traditional hummus. But with legumes out of the picture on a paleo or ketogenic diet, zucchini may sound like a wild and hopeless alternative.

Until you dip.

Tahini, garlic powder, and lemon team up to give zucchini hummus its authentic taste. Want to make it a meal? Try serving your hummus with freshly chopped veggies and Slow Cooked Greek Lamb Roast

  • Great to have a substitute for hummus! The tahini is quite strong – I will use about 2/3 of the recipe amount next time (I added more zucchini and lots of salt and pepper to balance the flavour for this one).
