I added 1/2 cup of cottage cheese to give it some protein and make it a complete snack with some pita bread and veggies for dipping.

This was very good, but needed a few changes. After making it exactly to the recipe, I added more garlic and pepper, plus some smoked paprika. Next time I'll add lemon juice to brighten the flavor as suggested by another reviewer.

Easy, light, and excellent. I drain beans and red peppers for a while in a colander, and have no need to pat them dry. I also add 4/5 cloves of roasted garlic, and a tablespoon of ground chili peppers to add more flavor and a bit of a punch. It comes out nice and creamy, great texture and great taste... and it's good for you.
