Baba Ganoush with a Zing

Do you love hummus but are trying to lower your overall carb intake? Say hello to Baba Ganoush! This Mediterranean dip is made from eggplants and offers creamy goodness without unhealthy additives. Yay for being #ketofriendly. I LOVE eating it with raw veggies. It makes an excellent snack and a great quick pick me up. My recipe has apple cider vinegar in it, which gives it a special ZING to it. Try it out! It’s delicious and, as always, super nutritious.
