SO HOW'D IT GO?

This is the BEST! I am a convert, and I will be making this often. Beautiful, nutritious, and soooo delicious. Five stars, for sure! My only regret is that I didn't take a picture.

I make Greek beets with similar ingredients (except for the cumin and tahini) in big batches. Then when I get a little tired of the beet chunks I make a puree to dip stuff in. I'd love to try this with the cumin and tahini. Marj, spread this on a whole wheat wrap and fill it with veggies like sprouts, cucumber, maybe some grilled eggplant or seitan. But scooping with your fingers is always delicious! Good idea, Yabbitgirl.
