Paleo Hummus (for the purest)

2 Courgettes
3/4 cup (180 millilitres) of Tahini
1/2 cup (120 millilitres) of Lemon Juice
4 Cloves of Garlic
1/4 cup (60 millilitres) of Olive Oil
2 1/2 tsp of Sea Salt
1/2 tbsp of Ground Cumin
Peel and cut the courgettes into small cubes. Add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth (or at least, hummus consistency).


We love hummus! The alternative to this uses cashews and isn't everyones ideal (there's a large movement that says cashews are NOT allowed on the Paleo diet). This is a wonderful solution, it tastes great and is very versatile, so you can add any additional flavours you like.


Sprinkle some Paprika and drizzle a little Olive Oil on top for a lovely authentic feel to your hummus. Just...stay away from the toasted Pitta Bread!
