As with all replicas or mimic foods, we can hardly say it tastes exactly like the original. I have been looking for a good chick pea free humus recipe for some time. I tried a cauliflower one and it was quite ok, but this one is spot on. It is the closest I could get to the original humus and surely satisfies my palate.

Ingredients

  • 5 small zucchini sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil + 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp tahini paste
  • 1 garlic clove – minced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Directions

  • Pre heat oven to 200ºC
  • Put the sliced zucchini, 2 tbsp olive oil, garlic and ground cumin in an oven proof dish and mix well
  • Roast the zucchini for 20 minutes or until fully cooked
  • Blitz the zucchini with the tahini, salt, pepper and lemon juice with a hand mixer or a food processor until you get a smooth paste
  • Add the lemon juice and cumin seeds and mix
  • Drizzle 1 tbsp of olive oil on top and serve
