I like this hummus because it doesn’t contain any beans which are hard to digest for some people, and can sometimes make you gassy, not good for a party.

Tahini is a nutritional powerhouse. It contains all the essential amino acids, making it a high quality protein, plus it is rich in lecithin, vitamin E and calcium. It is easily digestible because its high alkaline mineral content neutralizes the acid end products of the protein.  I serve them at parties on endive.
