Tahini Pimiento Spread

This is a tasty and versatile spread to uses in place of cheese. It is lower in fat and has no cholesterol.

1 - 2 tbsp. sesame tahini
1 1/2 cups hot cooked millet
1/3 cup pimientos (or as desired for color)
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp. food yeast
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. oil (optional)
2 tbsp. water (or as desired for consistency)

Combine all the ingredients in blender. Blend well until smooth and add just enough water to blend. Chill until thick. Add more water to achieve consistency desired.

Serve this as a spread on bread or in place of cheese to stuff celery, or as a dip with crackers. It is good on pizza in place of cheese. For variety use hot, cooked brown rice instead of millet.

Thanks again!
