Zucchini Hummus aka Zummus
I am slowly but surely falling in love with this vegetable. Earlier, for me zucchini would always end up only in a stir fry. Then I chanced upon zucchini Fritters, and then zucchini Lasagna and now Zucchini Hummus. Zucchini hummus or zummus is quite versatile. Have it with pita chips or lavash. It goes very well as a spread in sandwiches. It's better to make it a day in advance for the flavors to develop really well. You can increase the quantity of oil as per your taste. We at home were very impressed with zummus.
