Zucchini Boats
A Raw Vegan “Green” Snack
makes 4 servings

2 small-medium zucchini
1 large ripe avocado (or 2 small)
1/4 C. *chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 Tb. tahini* 
2 tsp. water
1/2 tsp. sea salt
juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
toppings: 
green bell pepper
green olives
basil

In food processor, blend together avocado, chickpeas, tahini, water, sea salt and lemon or lime juice.  Scrape down the sides as you go to keep the consistency smooth (don’t leave any chunks of the chickpeas).  

Prepare the zucchini by rinsing, drying and trimming off the ends.  Slice it in half length-wise and use a melon scooper or small spoon to scrape out the inside.  

Fill the inside, hollowed out portion of the zucchini with the avocado-chickpea mixture and smooth out.

Now have fun adding more green toppings like diced green bell peppers, basil (I did a chiffonade cut to be fancy), green olives or whatever healthy green ingredients you have on hand.

*the secret ingredients…shhh…

chickpeas: full of fiber, protein, folic acid, manganese & minerals
tahini: full of calcium & important B Vitamins
