Low Carb Tahini Dip

Tahini DipI’m not sure about you, but I can and do eat tahini with a spoon, you know, kind of like you can eat peanut butter or almond butter with a spoon and this tahini dip is no different.  It is very garlicy and lemony. The perfect dipping equipment would be a crudite which would include cucumber coins and red, yellow, and orange pepper chips.  This couldn’t be much easier to make and can be a great last minute appetizer for company.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Notes
  1. An interesting thing about tahini. It has lots of carbs but is also high in fiber. I use Organic Once Again brand tahini and for 2 T the label says 4g carbs and 4g fiber which would seem to make it a zero sum carb food yet in my nutritional calculator it comes out with lots more carbs than fiber and I am unable to specify the actual tahini brand.
  2. I do know this: Tahini is one of healthiest things you can eat.
