No bean pumpkin hummus is a yummy seasonal alternative to hummus made with traditional beans. It is a great way to sneak in extra veggies without even trying! So simple to make using your food processor – snack time is minutes away!
Confession #57 – My day revolves around a tiny blue container.
If you are on the 21 Day Fix, you totally understand what I’m saying.
Almost everything I love, food wise, falls into the healthy fat or blue container category. Avocado. Almonds. Cheese.
Oh how I love hummus.
I have been doing lots of research on Paleo diets and stumbled upon an idea of using zucchini in place of beans in hummus.
And so, because everyone is pumpkin crazy these days (and by everyone, I mostly mean me), I put together this pumpkin zucchini hummus and didn’t use a single bean. Or any oil.
For all my fixers, this means you don’t use BLUE or YELLOW for this hummus. It’s GREEN and TSP. But the texture and taste are totally spot on.
Are you listening to me? No BLUE or YELLOW.
It’s a hummus miracle.
And it makes me dislike Autumn Calabrese a little less today. Just kidding.
Give this no bean pumpkin hummus a try and definitely play around with the flavors and seasonings! Make it work for you!
