A sweet and slightly spicy version of regular hummus that will help to keep all the winter bugs away, while offering a feast to the good gut microbes.
Serve with fresh vegetable sticks, like cucumber, carrot, radishes and colourful bell peppers. Create a rainbow on the plate to increase the number of different antioxidants and phytonutrients that represent each colour.
Each serving is a source of fibre (the same amount of an apple with the skin) and protein, while also providing a high dose of selenium, which contributes to healthy hair and nails, and a more resilient immune system.
