This spread beats hummus any day. Firstly, it’s much lower in fat, has no preservatives or additives, and tastes positively delicious. Even the photographer and stylist thought so! (Yes, there are side benefits to photographing food!) I was hoping I’d have it for Shabbos, but there was hardly any left! It tastes amazing on whole wheat challah!

Thank you to the Alters.
Blend all ingredients in the food processor. It should be a bit chunky and not completely smooth. Refrigerate. Use this within two to three days, (but don’t worry – it will finish before!) Serve with veggies and pita or crackers.
I tried this recipe with 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup water and it was excellent. I am forever trying to reduce the fat in recipes (even though olive oil is a very healthy fat) and I tried it with 1/8 cup olive oil and 3/8 cup water. It may have been a little less creamy, but I thought it was just as good. Do whatever suits you best!
