Roasted Sweet potato Hummus

This Roasted Sweet potato Hummus is a variation of the classic hummus. Sweet potatoes contain the best fibres to feed friendly gut bacteria. They are also a good source of beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, which helps to reinforce the gut lining (that space between our gut cells) and wall.

Tahini paste is a good source of healthy fat. It is made of toasted grounded hulled sesame seeds (another gentle fibre source). What is less known is that sesame seeds are a good source of calcium. For instance, 1tbsp of sesame seeds can provide 90mg of calcium. This compares to 120mg of calcium provided in 100ml of cow’s milk.

Overall, it is a good addition to family meals. It can be eaten from weaning.
