Zucchini Hummus

Small zucchinis are very moist, so if you’re using them, omit the water from the recipe until you see what the texture looks like as you process the ingredients: you want it to resemble a loose peanut butter. If you’re using large dry zucchinis, start out with ½ c water, then add water toward the end of processing if you need to thin the hummus out.

Garlic-Lime Black Bean and Avocado Spread
