Not quite hummus but equally as delicious and lower in starchy carbohydrates. This recipe is packed full of digestion loving ingredients. Those that support better breakdown of foods and reduce excess wind and bloating. You got to love that. It also contains a good whack of healthy fats to keep you satisfied and full until your next meal. Zahini is amazing as a dip, sauce or even as a side dish/puree to accompany a quality protein. Give it a go and let me know what you think. 🙂
