    I am a big fan this recipe. I made it last month and it is so nourishing and tasty. I forgot to add the the garlic (which is a must-have stuff in most of my meals) and guess what? It still tasted amazing. I can't wait to make this as a party appetizer and have something yummy and healthy to share. term research

    This is super easy! I used gluten-free bread toasted & smashed. It was good as a dip with gluten-free bagel chips and sugar snap peas, but I also made a roll with a lettuce leaf, the spread and a slice of turkey. It was a quick & healthy lunch! I am curious to try a roll with tuna next time.

    Can't get enough of this appetizer! It's healthy and filling (walnuts=protein) and super delicious and easy to make. Thanks Angela!

    I love this recipe. Just made it last week and it is so good. I accidentally left off the garlic (which I love) and it was still great. I can't wait to make this as a party appetizer and have something yummy and healthy to share.
