  1. Are the ingredients supposed to contain chickpeas?


    1. Jen, Usually yes. The main ingredients are typically tahini and chickpeas. However, there are many variations and this is one of them. 🙂


  2. Have you ever made it without tahini? Looking to lower the fat.


    1. The fat in tahini comes straight from the sesame seeds, which is a healthy fat and give hummus that hummus flavor. That said you could certainly make this as a zucchini dip without the tahini.


  3. My batch turned out really runny. Is there a way to thicken it? The flavor is great!


    1. This could be thickened by blending in some raw or toasted walnuts, no peels. They taste excellent with zucchini and are a great thickener.


    2. If you gel some chia seed in water and add it in the mix it will thicken it up plus add some extra good for you stuff from the chia.


  4. I can't wait to try this. I like hummus but my family gets tired of the same ole , same ole. I saved the sweet potato hummus recipe too.


  5. Do you have the nutritional info on this or WW points?


    1. Diane, Not yet but we should have it entered soon. 🙂


  6. What is tahini?


    1. Linda, Sesame Seed paste, similar to peanut butter but made with ground sesame seeds.


    2. Tahini is sesame seed paste. It's a traditional ingredient found in most hummus. You can find it around other Mediterranean/ Middle Eastern spice and ingredient sections in some grocers or on amazon.


  7. Finally made this past weekend. It was SO good!! Thank you for all of the healthy recipes. I've made a few things and look forward to adding to my list! Can't help but smile when I have skeptics going back for seconds and begging for the recipe! 🙂


    1. Awwww…you’re so welcome! We’re adding more recipes all the time. 🙂


  8. This makes my paleo heart happy. I've missed hummus.


  9. Made this for dinner and it was awesome! Thanks so much for the recipe!


  10. If you use 8 servings, each one is 5 weight watchers points…I just did the calculations. 🙂


  11. In original chickpea hummus, the chickpeas are cooked beforehand. I'm wondering if the zucchini could be steamed first. I haven't eaten raw zucchini before.


    1. Danielle, No the zucchini does not have to be cooked first. Though you are absolutely right about the chickpeas, they must always be precooked.


  12. Mine is runny. I would rather not add walnuts to the recipe. Could I use less olive oil??


    1. Erica, Yes, you can use less olive oil. You can also get water out of zucchini ahead of time by salting the zucchini slices and letting them sit for 15 minutes up to a half hour, until the water comes out of them, then remove salt with a clean towel or rinse and pat dry and then blend the zucchini into hummus.


  13. Made this today but didnt use the garlic as im lowfodmap, replaced it with a handfull of green (only) shallots, very moreish


  14. Is the cumin supposed to be seeds or is it the spice (ground cumin)?


    1. Ground cumin – if you only have the seeds you can use a coffee grinder to make them into a powder!


  15. How far in advance can this be made? Thanks!


    1. Hi Lori, you can make this a day or two ahead.
