AMAZING!!!! What a scrumptious way of serving white beans! Mmmm! I made half the recipe using only 1 tbs of water as the liquid in order to get a thicker consistency. It was sooo yummy, I was tempted to lick the serving bowl. lol The tahini and garlic add a wonderful depth of flavour to this, which is balanced nicely by the citrusy cumin seeds. I will most certainly make this again! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing another keeper with us, Pat! Made and reviewed for Make My Recipe #11 June 2010.
