Yum! I had some roasted red peppers in the fridge that needed to be used up, so this was the perfect recipe. I only used 1/4 cup of both tahini and lemon juice and then added just a touch of the bean "fluid" from the can. I also added some all purpose seasoning to give it a little extra oomph. Thanks for sharing!
