Tahina

This sesame-seed paste can be bought ready-made from Greek and Middle Eastern grocery stores. If you have a blender or food processor, however, it is easy to make at home. Tahina is eaten as a dip with raw vegetables, such as peeled cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, bell pepper slices, lettuce leaves, and green onions (scallions).

ingredients

1 1/4 cups sesame seeds
1 cup water
2 cloves garlic
juice of 2 lemons
1/2 teaspoon salt

method

1. Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend on high until you have a thick, smooth paste.

2. If tahina is not to be used immediately, store it in a closed jar in the refrigerator, where it will keep for several months.

3. The sesame oil tends to separate out of the paste, so stir again before using.
