- 4. add beans and dash of liquid.
- 5. a-while blending, add liquid a little at a time, watching for correct consistency. (you want a smooth pasty like substance without lumps.)
- b-you may need to stop blender and clean sides. also taste and check if there is enough salt!
- 6. transfer to glass pan or bowl and spread across bottom. cover with cling wrap. (something flat makes it easier for everyone to dip)
- 7. sprinkle paprika on edges and chill in fridge for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
- 8. serve with pita bread, celery, carrots, cucumbers, peppers, or anything you can think of dipping!
- Bear in mind this is a starter recipe, some people prefer more lemon juice or salt. Once you make this enough, you can do everything by eye without measuring. This is what she gave me to start with. Enjoy!
