  • Loved it!
    I used no Garlic in mine.
    I only had cumin seeds, I lighted roasted them with oil in a pan then crushed them up, I used half a tsp, not 1/4 so it had a nice spicy aftertaste kick to it.
    I also used only parsley.
    It is delicious, I pretty much ate the whole thing myself...
    Thanks Lucy - 8/4/13

  • I left out the olive oil as the others suggested, but mixed in some low fat cream cheese, for some creaminess. Yummy! - 5/23/13

  • This is a good basic recipe, some tips: Leave away the oil, I didn't need it at all, spread was already very liquid. Bake for 30 minutes, that's enough. Mine was about 1/2 to 3/4 cup, so not really 6 servings...anyway, great low-cal recipe, thanks for sharing! - 5/4/10
