This may be one of the most random recipes I’ve thrown together… and possibly least visually appetizing! It’s bumper crop season for zucchini and this is a great way to use them up. If you like hummus this is not a far cry, contains hidden veggies, low carbs and healthy fats.
3 medium zucchini
1 TBSP olive oil
2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning (I use Badia brand because is is certified GF)
3 tsp garlic paste from a tube, or 6-8 garlic cloves
1 tsp salt
1 cup walnuts
Slice zucchini in half, spritz with olive oil and season with 1 tsp lemon pepper and garlic. Place on cookie sheet and roast at 375 for 30 minutes. Add 1 cup walnuts to sheet pan. Roast an additional 5-7 minutes until walnuts are toasted. Cool. Add zucchini and walnuts to a high powered blender, add additional 1 tsp lemon pepper and 1 teaspoon salt. Blend on high for 1 minute. Use veggies or crackers for dipping! So good!
