Zucchini Hummus

Zucchini Hummus

I am a huge fan of hummus, but I don’t always love making it at home, because it takes a little bit of effort to get it as smooth as restaurant quality hummus.

By swapping the chickpeas with raw zucchini, this hummus becomes so creamy, so light and refreshing, and comes together so fast, it’s my absolute favorite way to make hummus at home!
