this recipe is really good - a great cost-cutting alternative to tahini hummus

WOW!!  This recipe is amazing - we love the blended version!  It really tastes so much like hummus when you blend it and less calories and fat!!  The chunky version tastes good too if you dont have a blender/food processor.  We served it with zucchini and carrot rounds -- the sweet carrots tasted a bit better.

Great subsitution for hummus!  Also, kids mentioned that they would like it as a taco topper instead for sour cream-- perfect texture and taste.

I was out of sour cream, so I substituted cottage cheese instead with a little water to make it the consistency I wanted.  So yummy!
