I love this idea. I've experimented with different beans for spreads too. I guess I could sub in tahini since I don't have a cup of sesame seeds???? I bet that was a bit eerie reading about SARS.

Simona Carini

Thank you Debra. By all means, you can try making the recipe with tahini. Let me know if you do. It was eerie, indeed :)


Eeeeeeek!!! I cannot believe I lost track of time. How can it be 8 April already?! I had great plans for participating too, with several books to choose from, but one in particular that I was completely entranced by.

Strangely, I've never read any PD James, even though her books have been recommended to me often. (We've watched the PBS series featuring the character Adam Dalgliesh and really liked it too.) Inspector Dalgliesh comes down with SARS!! What a timely book to read these days. And how different the world is since the SARS outbreak. (I often think about going to donate blood here in Toronto in 2003 before SARS was announced as being officially contained here and being asked if I had been exposed to anyone with SARS. I looked back in surprise and said, "Well, I live in Toronto....")

The characters never have anything to eat with their drinks?! No wonder they became ill! Your lentil spread sounds wonderful, Simona, and just the thing to comfort us as we abide by our latest province-wide stay-at-home orders.

Take care!

Simona Carini

Dear Elizabeth, please do not worry: losing track of time happens. I plan to host Novel Food again, so hold that plan :) I do like PD James and can only recommend her books.
