Tahini and Mint Spread

spread tahini and mint cymera (1)

Last week I bought a huge jar of white and super creamy tahini at a local organic supermarket. I’m using tahini mostly for sauces or to top my salads, but I’m only using a small amount each time. I didn’t want it to go bad before I’ve been able to use it all up. Therefore, I made something out of it, something honestly delicious. This spread is so good, tasting fresh and a bit unconventional. It contains protein and useful unsaturated fats, greens and spices. I enjoy it with any kind of bread or veggies, it’s always delicious.

Makes 1 small jar (about 140ml):

5 heaped tablespoons of tahini

1 handful of fresh mint leaves

2 teaspoons of tamari

1 tablespoon of water (or more)

juice of 1/2 a lime

a pinch of salt

a pinch of pepper

chili flakes

Cut mint leaves into small pieces. Put all ingredients in a food processor or a mini chopper and blend until creamy. If you want it a bit smoother, add some more water.

Store the spread in an air-tight glass jar in the fridge.

Seasons: spring, summer, autumn
