Sometimes you just need a good snack in between meals or a small plate to serve to guests. When people think of snacks, they usually think of chips, popcorn, cookies and other processed foods. Snacking doesn’t have to be unhealthy; in fact, it shouldn’t be. This roasted garlic and tahini spread is the perfect snack to serve with crudites or flax crackers, and it’s approved for all of my programs. Enjoy!
