Hummus doesn’t just have to be chick peas and Tahini — what a bore! A perfect combination of ripe avocado, fresh zucchini, a small bag of carrots and an onion, this dish is taken to a whole new level when you toss in a dash of Agave nectar and chili powder for a palate-pleasing treat!


1/4 cup Tahini
2 Zucchini, shredded
1/2 Avocado, peeled, cored and mashed
1/4 tsp. Chili Powder
1 can Garbanzo Beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp. Agave Nectar
1/4 cup Sweet onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. Warm water
1/2 cup Carrots, shredded


In a food processor, combine lemon juice, water, and Tahini; puree until smooth consistency.

Slowly add mashed avocado, shredded carrots, and shredded zucchini; continue to puree.

Add chopped onion, agave nectar, and chili powder; puree until desired smooth consistency.

Transfer into serving dishes.

Enjoy with your favorite whole grain chips, pitas, crackers, or raw vegetables.
