Nice recipe. I added more spice & garnished with sesame seeds on top. To thicken it I added ground flax seed: Healthy & it's nutty taste complements the recipe. Read More

Very nice flavor. I did add a couple of items. Some green bell peppers and a jalapeño pepper, extra curry and garlic and a can of garbanzo beans to thicken a bit more. Read More

I roasted the zucchini in the olive oil garlic lemon and salt before blending. It is not thick like standard hummus but still delicious! Read More

I found this to be very liquidy. Not creamy at all. I even added a can of cooked chick peas as in the original hummus but still not the same texture. Read More

I used extra zucchini from the garden (one of the big ones) and it was surprisingly good! I think I may like this better than chickpea hummus. Read More

Made as directed w/one change: I pureed zucchini first then put it in a strainer for an hour to let excess water drain out. Then back in the food processor w/other ingredients. Tweak the flavor as you like. Read More

I liked this. I thought it was a nice way to use up some of my summer zucchini. I didn't have any tahini so I used my seasame oil instead of olive oil and it tastes just great. It is a little thinner than regular hummus but had a nice flavor. Thanks for the idea and recipe! Read More
