Why I Love This Recipe

FEATURING: Pattypan squash (or hummus), garlic (or garlic scapes), and basil.

This is an incredible fast & easy dip that everyone loves! It's a great way to use entire pattypan squashes (keeping the skin on). It really tastes like hummus but it is a lighter vegetable-based & gluten-free dip. You can also make this dip with zucchinis and other summer squashes (note: if you use green zucchinis, the dip will be green or greener).

Ingredients You'll Need

3 cups pattypans (or zucchinis or both), chopped with skin (approx. 2-3)
2 Tbsp tahini (sesame butter)
1 Tbsp oil (sunflower or olive)
1 garlic clove, minced
A few basil leaves, to taste
1/2 - 1 tsp ground cumin
Salt & pepper, to taste
1/4 to 1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice
Paprika, for garnish


In a blender, combine all ingredients, adding the lemon gradually.

Blend until smooth and garnish with paprika.
