Healthy Breakfast - "Green Slippers" with Zucchini, Hummus and Cucumber

Healthy Breakfast - "Green Slippers" with Zucchini, Hummus and Cucumber

Maybe one of the “hardest” meals to think and create is breakfast. I try to stick to gluten, dairy and sugar free diet so besides oatmeal and grated carrot/apple there’s nothing much I can think about.

That’s why I am very pleased to present you one of my latest creations in terms of “healthy breakfast”: “Green Slippers” with zucchini, hummus and avocado.


How to prepare tahini, part of the hummus recipe

Tahini is one of the ingredients of hummus, an important part of my breakfast, and I like to prepare it at home. Below you have my recipe.

“Homemade” tahini – what ingredients do you need

150 g sesame seeds

3-4 tablespoons of oil

a pinch of salt

The same seeds should be toasted a little bit before but you can skip this step. Another idea would be to search for roasted sesame seeds in the market.

When the sesame seeds have cooled, put them in the food processor, and process them until a pasta forms. If you have a very good blender you can choose it too.

Then, add oil and salt in the food processor for the pasta to be even smoother. Three or four tablespoons of oil should be enough. As for the oil you can use grape seed oil or avocado oil.

How to make hummus and what ingredients do you need

Now that we’ve set how to make tahini, let’s see how to make hummus.

What ingredients do you need

1 canned of chickpeas


freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 small clove of garlic

ground cumin


olive oil

To make hummus, just add all these into the food processor or blender. Put first tahini and lemon juice and then add the rest of the ingredients.

After the pasta is a smooth one, add 1 tablespoon of cold water and mix it a little bit more. This will make the hummus even smoother.

Breakfast with zucchini, hummus and cucumber

Now, you just have to prepare or better said to arrange your breakfast.

Take a zucchini, wash it, cut it into rounds and put on each slice a little bit of hummus, a slice of cucumber, one walnut and decorate with parsley. Now I realise you can also add avocado.

It’s that easy.


If you don’t want to eat raw zucchini, just cook it in a little bit of olive oil before.
