    Great alternative for hummus when I have no chick peas in the house. Having a husband with diabetes and high cholesterol, any proteins I can get from beans is great.I figure I can always change it up with different spices. At 12 servings/50 cals per if we split it we get 300 cals each for a meal. - 2/5/09

    I have done this with a variety of beans sometimes adding hot peppers or green onions chopped. I have done this with green peas for a mockamole. Think outside the box!!! Try cumin instead of the sage - 1/6/09

    I ditched the sage and used dill instead. Its a good meat replacement. If used used instead of meat have 3 servings at 150 cals and serve with veggies. - 5/1/08

    I liked this! Next time I'll give it more of a hummus flavor with more lemon juice and garlic. - 1/8/09

    Very tasty. I did double the garlic and I think next time I will add even more. It made a great late night snack with bread sticks (garlic flavored, of course). - 1/14/09
