Very good light dip. Disregard the nuts if you want less carbs/lighter dip. Even better if you use honey mustard, it really adds to the sweet peppers.

I love this recipe! I use it for a sandwich spread on whole wheat bread This time I made it with jarred red peppers, because there were no fresh ones to be had. It came out fine, but slightly softer, so I added more cashews.

I was intrigued by the ingredients in this recipe. I made it as per the instructions, but it didn't turn out well at all. It was very bland and too runny. I'm not sure what happened, but I don't think I'll make it again.

This recipe is ok. I made half the recipe with cashews and half without and the recipe again without cashews and both tasted about the same. I put in more cashews than the recipe called for but I still could hardly taste them! All in all it's a decent spread but not quite what I was hoping for.

Great low calorie spread. No one even knows it's made of tofu.
