    OK now, I made this 2 times already. Don't remember if I told you about the first time or not. The first time I didn't take a picture, but now I did, so I added it. Couldn't find pomegranates this time of the year in my local store for garnish, sorry! Also, the first time I didn't make the seasoned bread to go with it, but this time I did. Keep forgetting to ask you about the amount of cumin here. It says to add cumin, just doesn't tell how much. I aded 1 tsp. and it seemed perfect! Gave it a nice hint of spiciness. Anyway, this is VERY delicious! The best version of this dip I ever tried! The ground almonds add that special something! I really recommend everyone to try this! The bread...I used 1/3 of spices here(1 tbsp. of each ingredient, instead of 3 tbsp.) I wasn't making too much bread. Oh, the bread tasted sooo goood!!! I could just eat it all by itself as some sort of appetizer! This recipe is in my favourites and I'll make it often!

    Oh, Jim I forgot to tell you I made this recipe of yours and I have to say it was quite different then what I am use to getting over here at our Middle Eastern restaurants. Your Baba Ghanoush With Lebanese Flatbread was so much more luxurious and much more flavorful.

    I enjoy dipping bread with good friends and a glass of wine.
    ... or is it bread and a glass of wine with old friends, that's better. It doesn't sound like I'm eating the friends.
    Thanks for the post.
