Lemon Zucchini Dip - 3.7g Carbs, 1.3g Fiber, 1.1g Sugars

This dip is great for a midday snack alongside vegetables or whole-grain crackers or as a cold sauce for sandwiches.
Prep: 5 min
Servings: 8

2 small zucchini (about 2 cups)
2 Tbsp tahini*
1/2 bunch parsley, leaves only, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
1 garlic clove, peeled
1 large lemon, zested and juiced (about 2 Tbsp juice)
1/4 tsp celery seed
1 Tbsp sun-dried tomato paste**
1/4-1/2 cup water, depending on the thickness you desire

    * Tahini is sesame paste, found in the Mediterranean section of most supermarkets.
    ** Or 1 sun-dried tomato soaked in one tablespoon hot water.

Puree all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Cover and chill. Will keep for one week in refrigerator.

I love to use this sauce when I have left over pork tenderloin. It brightens the whole meal.
Look for young, small zucchini; they work best for this recipe. Large zucchini are fibrous and really only suitable for baked goods.
