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
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
