1/3 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
1-2 ounce jar diced pimentos
teaspoon salt
juice of one lemon or lime
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
cup roasted and salted sunflower kernels

Puree beans and garlic in a food processor; empty into a mixing bowl. Stir in artichoke hearts, mayonnaise, pimentos, salt and lemon juice. Turn into a Pyrex pie pan and sprinkle with cheese and sunflower kernels.

Broil 4-6 inches from heat for 5-7 minutes, until bubbly and golden brown. Serve warm with crackers, pita or toasted bread.
