A hummus recipe that's free of garbanzo beans, healthy and tastes great? Oh, and uses up my overwhelming supply of zucchini from my garden? Yup its true, I'm now a believer. Whip this up, don't tell anyone whats in it, plop down a bowl and watch it disappear. When you reveal the truth, they will all want the recipe once they discover that its made with raw zucchini. The good news is I'm down 3 zucchinis and I have a great app for my neighbors party this afternoon.
