Zucchini Hummus

Alright, this may be my last zucchini recipe -- and it's a good one!  Hummus is usually made with garbanzo beans, but in this recipe, we've just switched out the beans and used zucchini instead.  According to Jack (5yo), it tastes just like the stuff you can buy at Costco.  Needless to say, I think that you could easily serve this to non paleo eaters and they wouldn't be able to tell the difference.  It's a great dip to have with veggies and it would be great on some paleo crackers too. 

Zucchini Hummus

2 medium zucchini
3/4 cup tahini
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
3 cloves garlic
1/2 Tbsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp sea salt

Peel and chop zucchini.  This is important -- if you don't peel your zucchini, you'll end up with greenish humus.  Add all ingredients to food processor and process until smooth.
