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.

Very tasty recipe! I served this with chopped vegetables, and it was quickly devoured. I didn't have cumin seeds, so I added some ground cumin to the dip. I topped it with Cajun spice mix for a bit of heat. Yum! Thanks Pat!

A tasty and healthy dip recipe. I toasted my cumin seeds before sprinkling on top and also added some ground cumin and salt whilst processing. Great with toasted pita or veg it also makes a great addition to a salad roll or wrap...MMM!
