Ingredient notes

  • Tahini:

    • Not familiar with tahini? It’s a paste made from ground sesame seeds.  You can find it in most big grocery stores- look in the condiments aisle near specialty olives, in the ethnic foods aisle, or in the natural foods aisle near other condiments

    • You can also make your own tahini with just sesame seeds and olive oil. Check out this recipe here if you’d like to try it.

Grown-up Pro Tip

Did you know that the juice inside of a chickpea can is called “aquafaba” and that it can be used as an egg substitute? Reserve it when you drain the can and try using it in one of these recipes.

This Recipe is Dietician Approved!

Can’t get your kids to eat enough red meat to satisfy their iron needs? Look no further than hummus as an iron-rich option. Pair with vitamin-C rich veggies (like bell peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, snow peas, and kale) to improve absorption of the plant-based iron in chickpeas and tahini, and you have a winning snack option to boost their iron intake.
