Paleo Friendly Hummus

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.


  1. Oh YUMMY!!!! I cannot wait to try this. I have actually been craving hummus!!

  2. I made this yesterday it was REALLY good. I was surprised at how expensive tahini is, however!

    Blending in other choices (olives, peppers, etc) would make other yummy options as well.

  3. Yeah, I bought a big bottle and you only need a little, if anyone wants me to bring in a couple of tablespoons I would be happy to share!
