Zucchini Hummus (and Seth)

Zucchini = delicious. Hummus = also (very) delicious. Zucchini and Hummus together = surprisingly amazing. Yeah, pretty much this stuff is uber tasty. I brought it to a small get-together and the folks over there loved it as well. (See, I am not crazy!!) 

 Zucchini. Oh so healthy.

 Simmer in water until soft (no oil, por favor).

 Blender time...

 Prepare hummus. Mix in pureed zucchini.

Thank goodness for food processors.

 Friends!! Love you girls <3


...and eat! (hahahaaa, gotta love the faces)

 eat with veggies...

...or not.

Zucchini Hummus
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 2 cups garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  1. Heat the water in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic for 30 seconds, then add zucchini. Cook and stir until zucchini softens.
  2. Place zucchini in the blender and puree.
  3. Combine the garbanzo beans, lemon juice, tahini, ground cumin, paprika, and salt in a food processor. (You may/may not have to add a bit of olive oil to make it process smoothly.) Process until smooth. (You have just made hummus, congratulations!)
  4. Combine the pureed zucchini with the hummus, process until combined.

OH! And here is something REALLY great that happened lately...
My twin brother, best friend, greatest example, spiritual giant came home from a mission!
Yes, I have a TWIN! (surprise!) And please don't ask if we are identical. We are the opposite gender...thus we are fraternal.
Okay, glad we got that cleared up.
Ready to see him? Get excited.

Here we are. Yeah, he is pretty much amazing.

Just got off the plane.

A couple of my brothers and I.
I LOVE my brothers.

Sethy trying to look bigger than Isaac.
When Seth saw Isaac, he said: "Wow, you are...just...huge!" (with an Argentinian accent)
It's gonna take some serious strength-building for Seth to get as big as his "little" brother.
Good luck Seth.
