Once considered an exotic product and difficult to obtain, today tahini is the star of home cooking and different types of raw tahini can be obtained almost everywhere.
The types of tahini vary according to the place where it was made, the production method, the sesame seeds used to make it, and more—but most types have in common the fact it is a delicious, healthy, cheap, and nutritious product.
Tahini can be used in many dishes, but there is one sauce that is just insane.
1/2 cup of raw tahini
5-8 tablespoons lemon or lime
2 cloves crushed garlic
2 tablespoons quality olive oil
5 tablespoons coriander / chopped parsley / dill
Salt to taste
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until the mixture is completely uniform. Finally, add more lemon or salt to taste.
The sauce is served immediately or kept in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
The sauce goes great with a fresh vegetable salad, as a dip, on hot stews, or simply on a slice of fresh bread.
