Tehini sauce

Sampled & enjoyed by the Parmeter clan Christmas 2009!

1/3 cup raw tehini (sesame paste) (usually its next to the peanut butter in the supermarket)
lemon juice

Place the tehini in the food processor. Add lemon juice, garlic, a little water and salt. Blend. If the paste looks thick, add more water and blend again. If its too thin, add a tiny bit more paste. It should turn lighter in color and be the consistency of a thin yogurt. Taste. Correct seasoning. Eat. With anything.

Variations– Green tehini (my favorite) wash 1 bunch of parsley, chop well in food processor. Proceed with the tehini recipe on top of your chopped herb. The tehini will come out green in color and more fresh tasting.

sweet tehini (halva) – mix a little raw tehini with some honey. Spread on crackers. Yum.
