One of my go-to party foods has always been hummus. I have a couple great recipes that I bring to get togethers but sadly, hummus is not considered paleo thanks to the chickpeas.
We were invited to a friend's place Friday night and I spent part of Thursday trying to decide what to bring. I wanted something that I'd be allowed to eat since I was pretty sure most of the food there would be off limits. I stumbled upon this hummus recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot.
I thought there was no way it would be thick like regular hummus given the water content in zucchini or taste even close, but surprisingly, it was a very good. It really DID taste like hummus and the spicy peppers and pine nuts on top gave it a little zing. I made 1/2 a batch, which yielded about 2 cups of hummus. It was especially good with the cukes and a few people at the party had it with chips and said they really liked it. I think I'm going to try making a roasted red pepper version since that's my favorite flavor of hummus.
Do you like hummus? What's your standard potluck contribution?
