Can you Eat Tahini as a Dip?
Yes! Tahini makes an excellent dip! It is often a forgotten health food, but it truly is a versatile option that can be used as an alternative to many other sauces or tips.
- Use as a salad dresssing
- Spread on a piece of sprouted toast
- Dip veggies in it
- Stir it into soup
- Make it into a peanut allegy replacement
- Use on sandwiches
- Make cakes, cookies, or desserts with it
- Or make it into a yummy humus alterative!
What is Tahini Dip Made From?
Tahini is made from ground sesame seeds into a smooth paste. One thing that is nice about this health food is that it can be made into something savory or sweet. It truly is one of the most versatile pastes that have a lot of health benefits as well. It can be made from hulled seeds or whole seeds.
The most well-known dish that tahini is made with is hummus! This is what this recipe is all about! Tahini originates from Middle Eastern or Mediterranean dishes.
Tahini is very smooth, which is why it does so great as a hummus alternative!
Why is Tahini good for You?
Tahini is considered a health food in most circles. It contains more protein than milk and many nuts. What makes it famous is it's a rich source of vitamin B which is known to boost energy and brain function. It also contains vitamin E, magnesium, iron, and calcium.
Why make a hummus alternative? There is nothing wrong with hummus. In fact, it is very good for you. There are healthy fats and carbohydrates that make it a wonderful option for most people.
However, if you live a Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle, you may want something similar that does not contain both healthy fats and carbs at the same time. That is where this option becomes a great alternative.
It is all fat-based and although it does taste different than traditional hummus, it certainly is remonstrant of the texture!
Ingredients for the Hubby Lovin' Tahini Dip
Why is it called 'Hubby Lovin'?
The seasoning is made with a special concoction from Trim Healthy Mama called Hubby Lovin' breading and seasoning. If you don't have Hubby Lovin' seasoning you can alternatively use equal parts parmesan, garlic powder, paprika, parsley, pepper, and a tiny bit of cayenne.
However, I have found having Hubby Loving' seasoning on hand is super nice! I use it in lots of chicken recipes and as a very easy way to flavor dips, soups, and sauces. I've even used it in meatball recipes!
