Fava beans are traditional in this hummuslike dip. Use them, if you find them, in place of the lima beans. Serve with raw vegetables for dipping.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook beans in boiling water 10 minutes or until very tender. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid.

Step 2

Place sesame seeds in a blender; process until finely ground. Add juice and remaining ingredients; process until blended. Add beans and 1/2 cup reserved liquid; process until almost smooth, scraping sides of blender occasionally.
