This Zucchini Hummus is really simple to make. Just throw all of the ingredients in the blender and voila!
And bonus….. if you are on the Standard Process Purification 21 Day Cleanse…… this really helps eat all those raw veggies! You can use store bought tahini in the cleanse (as long as it’s only sesame seeds (plus oil in some)) or make your own. It’s really easy if you have access to bulk sesame seeds (I got a 2 lb bag on Amazon). Details on how to do this are in the notes of the recipe below.
For more cleanse recipes see my Standard Process Cleanse post. It is my diary for the cleanse and I’m also including my favorite recipes!
