My kiddo just loves dipping his food however most commercial pre-made dips are full of no-no ingredients I am always trying to find new fun dips that meet all of his restrictions and are school friendly. I stumbled on a recipe for hummus made with nut butter and zucchini in a cookbook I borrowed from the Toronto Public Library; I made a few changes and voila a new staple recipe in my house for a great portable dip!
Side note: If anyone in your family has many food sensitivities or allergies definitely check out this book “The Autism Cookbook” it has lots of amazing kid friendly easy recipes.
