Wow! My first time trying hearts of palm, and I picked the best recipe! Delicious dip which kind of reminded me of mashed potatoes. I also used some to top a baked potato and it was fantastic. Bet this would be a great spread on a sandwich too. I halved the recipe and ended up using maybe a 1/4 cup oil. The garlic flavor is intense, so if you don't love it as much as I do, I'd recommend using a bit less and tasting first. It was just perfect for me. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe, Bergy!
