Zucchini Hummus

When I mention hummus as an ideal snack to my clients, some of them are hesitant. They either don't like the taste of beans or find it makes them gassy afterwards.

​

That's what led to this delicious hummus creation. Zucchini is easy to digest and even aids digestion! Plus, it’s a good source of fiber and vitamins A and C, so it's great for the immune system, too 🙂. 

​

It doesn't get much more simple than this: 

​

Crudités are the traditional dippers for hummus, but try some tart Granny Smith apples for something a bit unexpected but delicious!
