“This is a wonderful addition to the chip and vegie dips out there. For a slightly more Mediterranean version, substitute dried thyme for cumin and chopped basil for cilantro. Gently heat the dip to warm it, then mix in a few ounces of crumbled goat cheese or feta cheese and serve with pita wedges. Prep time does not include 1st soak”
