Menu Monday: Zucchini Hummus #paleo


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?
