MUNG BEAN HUMMUS This is my take on Hummus, since I love the mighty Mung Bean! It’s a bit out of the box, but that’s a good thing if it tastes good, and that it does!!! Mung Beans are super high in protein and fibre which reduces the carb value! They are so versatile and delicious, that I continue to experiment with them. The raw Sesame Seeds adds a little crunch and the Lime Juice really compliments the combined flavours! Hope you like!
