I tried this recipe today. It was okay. The blender worked great and it got a good, smooth texture, but I wasn't a fan of the flavor. It was a bit bland (I'm not sure, maybe I did something wrong).

I ended up turning it into a sesame bean dip, but I didn't like that much either. I think my problem might have been that I expected it to be a bit more like pate made of meat (not exactly, but more similar in satiation and flavor, maybe).

I do think it would work well as a base or a textural component of something else, though.

Hi Shindy - thank you SO MUCH for the feedback and taking the time to comment! Hmm, mine was extremely garlicky and not bland at all - maybe your garlic wasn't very strong? Sorry it didn't work for you though.

Have you seen the pimento olive dip I posted recently? Give that a go and see what you think!

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
