No Bean Hummus (RAW)

2 zucchini, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup raw tahini
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic, peeled
2 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
1/2 tablespoon ground cumin

In a high-speed blender, combine all of the ingredients and blend until thick and smooth. Yum!

*This is so delicious! I love chickpea hummus, but this tops all the ones I've had!

RAW Spring Cookies

3/4 cup raw almonds
1/4 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup raw coconut
4 dates chopped
1 banana mashed
2T agave nectar
1/2 tsp vanilla

In a food processor(I used a coffee grinder), grind the almonds, cashews and coconut into a finely ground flour. Pour nut flour mix into a bowl and add the dates, banana, agave, and vanilla, and mix with hands until it forms a ball of dough. I rolled the dough out to about 1/8" and cut out "spring shapes", tulips and ducks. You could roll into balls and press flat or cut out any desire shape. Then toss into dehydrator for about 12 hours (for solid but chewy cookies), longer if your desire is crispy cookies.
