Courgette Hummus

Hummus - the cornerstone of Middle Eastern cuisine is usually loaded with chickpeas. On LCHF that's a no no. So here is a delish alternative :)

Cut 250g courgettes into 2 cm rounds.  Toss on olive oil and salt and a little thyme.  Put in an oven proof dish and roast for 30-40 mins until soft.

Cool.

Using a hand blender or food processor blitz the courgettes with 3 tablespoons tahini paste, crushed garlic, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1 tablespoon olive oil and some salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy with seed crackers :)
