Odessa sent me a recipe book recently that had mostly green smoothies in them because I was challenged by her to drink a green smoothie every day for 30 days.  I loved them so much that I've continued to do it long past the 30 days.  Anyway, in the recipe book there was a hummus recipe that I made and LOVED.  I've changed it multiple times to fit what I have at home but here is what has turned out the best every time I've made it.

Zucchini Hummus

1 zucchini, chopped
1/2 cup white bean
3 T lemon juice
3 T olive oil
3-4 cloves garlic (I've been using roasted garlic)
1 t paprika
1/2 t salt
1/4 t cumin
pinch of cayenne
6 T Tahini
a few leaves fresh basil
a few sprigs fresh rosemary

Combine all ingredients in a food processor (or blender) except Tahini, basil and rosemary.  Blend until smooth.  Add the Tahini, basil and rosemary and blend again.

I've been eating this with a ton of veggies and crackers for dinner.  Yummy
