READY IN: 10mins

Sounds fabulous and placed here for safe keeping. They suggest serving it on toasted slices of baguette that have been rubbed with raw garlic but I have to imagine it would be great with raw veggies too. Recipe from Sauce Magazine, October 2009.

This is a wonderful, creamy spread that has such a yummy flavour! Mmmm, it tastes kinda sweet with a lovely deep roasty aroma from the pine nuts and garlic. YUM! I was a little short on pine nuts so I subbed some sunflower seeds for the missing amount and thought they were a nice addition. THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this awesome recipe with us, JB! Ill surely make it again! Made and reviewed for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #42 Group Anzac Biscuits July 2010.
