To obtain a smooth consistency, we prepare this recipe in a blender; however, for a more "chunky" dip, it can be made in a food processor.

Open the cans of chick peas and white kidney beans.  Drain off the liquid.  Empty the drained cans of chick peas and beans into the  blender container.

Open the can of tomato paste and spoon contents into the blender container.  Fill the tomato paste can with water and mix with a spoon to loosen any remaining tomato paste that is sticking to the inside of the can.  Empty into the blender container. 

Add all the other ingredients to the blender container, cover and run blender at high speed until creamy smooth.  The stiffness of the dip can be adjusted by adding a little more water. 

Spoon into a dip bowl or other container.  This dip is excellent for stuffing celery for a snack or appetizer, or as a topping for baked potatoes. 


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-31)
