Ladies night at Crossfit Valley Park tonight and I am feeling the pressure to bring some tasty treats to maintain my foodie reputation. I feel like I have been pushing the sweets lately, so I am heading savory tonight with a paleo hummus recipe to serve with fresh vegis. Just finished blending up this recipe I found on http://libidiny.blogspot.com and I love it! Don't miss the chickpeas at all.
Paleo Friendly Hummus
1 zucchini peeled and chopped
1/2 cup unsalted raw macadamia nuts
2 T Tahini (found in a jar in the salad dressing aisle)
2T olive oil
2 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 clove garlic minced
1 tsp sea salt
1 rounded tsp cumin
dash of cayenne pepper
Dump all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. For variety add roasted red peppers, pine nuts, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, or kalamata olives. Serve with baby carrots, red, orange or yellow pepper slices, celery, etc.
