joannE.'s Zucchini Hummus

The secrete is out....here is my go-to-any-occasion party dip! Makes 2 cups

2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Green Zucchinis (approx ¾ lb)
1 Medium Onion, thinly sliced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Tsp Salt
¾ Cup Sesame Tahini
1 15-oz Can Garbanzo Beans (Chick Peas), drained and rinsed
1/8 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
¼ tsp Black Pepper
¼ Tsp Cumin
¼ Tsp Paprika
Juice from ½ Lemon (approx 1 Tbsp)

Leaving the skins on, chop zucchini into ¼ inch pieces and thinly slice the onion. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Add zucchini, onion, garlic and salt and sauté vegetables for 5-6 minutes until tender.

Add the sautéed vegetables to a food process and pulse until smooth. Add beans, tahini, lemon juice and remaining spices. Puree until smooth. 


Garnish with an additional sprinkle of paprika and a drizzle of olive oil.

*If hummus is too thick to puree, add additional olive oil.
