COURGETTE HUMMUS

Since we are on the Paleo kick, this recipe is great for a Banting lifestyle. This recipe differs from the normal Hummus in that there are no chickpeas in the ingredients, making for a starch-free appetizer.

Makes 500 g

INGREDIENTS

  • 500 g courgettes, washed and cut into chunks
  • 25 ml olive oil
  • Salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste
  • 60 ml tahini paste
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 60 ml olive oil 
  • 3 ml Himalayan salt
  • 3 ml ground cumin

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan/ Gas mark 4.
  2. Toss the courgettes in 25 ml olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Roast in the oven for approximately 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown and soft.
  4.  Place into the food processor which has been fitted with the double-knife stainless-steel blade and all the remaining ingredients.
  5.  Process until a smooth purée is formed.
  6.  Place into a serving dish and drizzle over a small amount of olive oil prior to serving. 

 Serve with Nutty Crackers.
