No Bean Hummus


  • 2 cups chopped zucchini
  • ½ cup unpolished sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic (optional)
  • 6-8 green olives (stored in brine, not oil)
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ¼-⅓ cup water
  • 1 tsp unrefined salt


Except for water, take all ingredients in a blender and coarsely blend. Now, add water, a little at a time and blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and serve with carrot, cucumber and radish sticks, broccoli florets, or salad leaves.

This hummus stays in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
