Raw Hummus With No Beans Recipe

hummusIf you’re looking for a good hummus recipe and especially a healthy hummus recipe that also has no beans then this raw recipes fits the bill. Hummus as we know it usually contains cooked ingredients and includes beans but you can easily make the best hummus, without the beans or cooking it.

I’ve fixed and served this hummus many times and brought it to potlucks either as a dip or to be served on the side. You can also spread it on raw crackers or tortillas and top with salsa, tomatoes, avocadoes, cilantro or other herbs and veggies. I often make it and just keep it in the refrigerator for a few days ready to use.

For this raw recipe you’ll need 2 medium zucchini or cut a huge one down, 1/4 cup olive oil, 2-3 garlic cloves, sea salt, 1 large or 2 small lemons for juice, sesame seeds, tahini (comes in a jar or in bulk at food coops), ground paprika and ground cumin.

When you prepare this hummus recipe make sure to consider how spicy you want it to be. I prefer mine on the mild side. I have tried it with 4 cloves of garlic and it was too many. You can also cut down on the paprika and cumin, so start with a little and check by taste.

Here are the recipe ingredients: 2 medium zucchini, 1/4 cup olive oil, 2-3 garlic cloves, 2 tsp. sun-dried sea salt, 1/2 cup of freshly extracted lemon juice, 3/4 cup black or white sesame seeds, 3/4 cup tahini, 1/2 tsp. paprika and 1/2 tsp. cumin.

Cut up the unpeeled zucchini and place in a food processor along with the olive oil and 2 cloves of garlic and process until gently mixed. Add the sea salt, lemon juice, sesame seeds, tahini, paprika and cumin and process until mixed.

Refrigerate up to 3-4 days.

That’s it. An easy raw food recipe that takes only minutes to make. So much better than the store brands, which also include cooked ingredients. Only raw ingredients go into this hummus recipe. You can market and sell it it’s so good. You’ll want to adjust it to your taste. Just make sure not to make it too spicy because many people don’t like hot or spicy foods or can’t tolerate them. Raw foods don’t have to be hot and spicy to be good.
