I love the texture, I always wondered how they made it this way in restaurants. For a variation I left a little of the water out (about 1/2 cup), chilled the thick paste, sliced it and used the slices in sandwiches with sprouts and sliced cucumbers. Also, the chilled slices can be browned in a little olive oil for a tasty side dish or appetizer. Sprinkle with paprika, parsley and/or dill. Thanks madscientist97!
