Whoa, Pure Jeevan's Back?!

2016 update: Aha, you noticed?! Welcome. Yes, we wanted to bring the site back online again, mainly because it's so packed with articles and information. It will be a work in progress for some time, as we changed web platforms and all sorts of tech stuff. So, a lot of links are hard-coded to old Wordpress-style links... just awful. But, in time we'll get all of it back in shape. For now, enjoy clicking around and reading!

This is my version of a beanless hummus. One of my close friends adores the taste of Israeli Hummus and she thinks this tastes just like it. So, try it for yourself and let me know! Jim will eat this if he doesn't see me using the zucchini (he doesn't like the idea of eating zucchini for some reason). :-P

Hummus

3 cups of zucchini (peeled and chopped)

3/4 cup tahini

1/2 of a lemon, peeled

1/4 cup olive oil

3-4 cloves of garlic

1 1/2 - 2? teaspoons salt, to taste

Garnish:

drizzle of olive oil for top

paprika to sprinkle on top

Place all ingredients in a food processor (we prefer the Cuisinart because the motor is so powerful) and process until smooth. Pour into a dish and garnish with the drizzle of olive oil and sprinkling of paprika. Serve with chopped veggies (cucumbers and tomatoes are great with this!).

Note: The measurements don't have to be exact. If you have 2-3 zucchinis, it should be plenty. Some zucchinis are huge and you'd only need one--just go by taste and texture to adjust the recipe as needed.
