You surely know tahini, this paste made from ground sesame seeds. It is a fundamental ingredient of Middle Eastern cuisine, and of Lebanon in particular, where it is used especially in the preparation of hummus or halva. It is mixed with water and/or lemon juice to make a sauce traditionally served with falafel, meat or fish, and which goes wonderfully well with vegetables. It is both rich and light, and its delicate taste gives dishes a savory boost. I particularly like it with falafels (duh!), raw carrots and broccolis and of course in a salad. Feel free to adapt this recipe to your own taste and…yepa!
