No bean hummus

This is a great way to make your own hummus without cooking! It’s easy, fast and packed with protein from the sesame tahini. I make a batch every week and serve it over rice and beans, or with pita, carrots, cucumbers and celery. It’s a sure way to get your kids to eat their Veggies, if there’s any left after the adults get to it!


  • 2 zucchini, peeled and chopped
  • ¾ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 ½ teaspoons sea salt
  • ½ tablespoon ground cumin



  1. In a blender, combine all of the ingredients.
  2. Blend until smooth and thick.

What you should know

A high speed blender is preferred but not necessary.

Hi Karen. This recipe looks great, I am definitely going to try it. Do you like it best with pita bread? Or are there are better ways of taking it?
