I simply cook the vegetable is a small amt of water in the micro on high for several minutes or until the veges are tender. Drain any excess liquid and set aside( use it to thin out mixture if needed)
Place the mixture either in a blender or food processor and process or blend smooth
Now season with some olive oil, salt, pepper, vinegar and sugar.
The mixture should not be too sweet or to bitter so season to your desire.
And it should be thick and spreadable
This is wonderful served either chilled or at room temp. You'll find many ways to use this wonderful and healthy recipe
Careful, it stains!!!
NOTE: one can make this spread hot by adding some hot peppers to the mixture. I don't care for hot peppery stuff. And one can also add some chili powder to the mixture instead of the fresh hot peppers if desired
