  • 4-5 Cloves of Garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
  • Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1-15 oz Can of Chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Tbsp Tahini
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss together zucchini, 1 tbsp olive oil, garlic, a generous amount of black pepper. Place mixture in a shallow baking pan and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven. In a food processor or blender, combine chickpeas, tahini, 1 tbsp olive oil, and lemon juice. Add zucchini mixture and pulse a few times, leaving it kind of chunky.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
