In an effort to get creative with my already overflowing zucchini, I came up with another recipe I like. I was going to make zucchini hummus, but decided to try making a dressing using the blender instead, since it was out and the food processor wasn't! The result is great, simple and low fat. It could also be thinned to make a delicious soup. It's basically a thinned down, one step, hummus.
1 large zucchini peeled and chopped (or two smaller ones)
2 T. sesame seeds
1 T. olive oil
tiny piece of garlic (or use powder)
salt to taste
1/2 to 1 t. ground cumin
1 T. acv (you could also use lemon juice)
dash of cayenne pepper
Throw it all in the blender and blend until perfectly smooth. You may need to add a little water, the homegrown squashes have a higher water content than store bought. If you want soup, add a little more water. I am going to eat this on a salad of fresh greens, tomatoes, cucumbers and cauliflower with a little parsley on top and maybe an olive or two. It made alot, so I am going to try it on different combinations. Easy and delicious.
