I had this on a toasted bagel and really enjoyed it. The garlic really comes through in this recipe. I halved this recipe and followed instructions as listed and I had enough letf over for a sandwich for my lunch. Great recipe, thanks for sharing. Made for KIttencal's Forum Recipe Tag Game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place tahini and lemon juice in a blender and blend for a few moments, then transfer to a bowl. (I would use an immersion blender here.).
  2. Add garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, eggs, and water and stir gently until well mixed.
  3. Place on a platter, sprinkle with paprika and serve.
