Tahina

Tahina created by threeovens

Please note that the recipe does not recognize the ingredient Tahina sauce, so I am putting it here. Please use 4 heaping tablespoons of tahina sauce in the recipe. This is the recipe I make at home using tahina sauce as the main base. It is a basic recipe and just the way everyone in my family likes it. I'm glad, though, that there are so many different tahina recipes out there, because then you can just prepare the kind you like. Or you can do a combination of recipes to see which ones suits your fancy. For this recipe, I use bottled lemon juice, but you can always use fresh lemon juice if you like.

ingredients

directions

  • In a food processor combine all ingredients, minus the 2 tablespoons of water. Pulse on slow for 1 minute. Stir with spoon to check consistency, as it shouldn't be thick.
  • Add the 2 tablespoons of water, and pulse again for 30 seconds. It should be fine at this point.
  • Split the tahina onto two plates. Put 1 tablespoon and 1 1/2 tablespoons of zaatar on each plate. Serve immediately with pita bread.

    I wasn't sure what to expect since I am unfamiliar with tahina, but I liked it very well. I found something in the store called "pita pretzels" and used them. I dipped the pretzel in the tahina, then into the za'atar seasoning. Nice burst of flavors! Made for ZWT #6 - ZINGO.

    Great tahina! DH enjoyed it with falafel, grilled eggplant and pita bread. The tahina I used was from toasted sesame seeds, so it was a little dark and less sour than from raw sesame seeds. This will be a keeper - thanks for sharing! Made for The Unrulies Under The Influence for ZWT6 Zingo.

    This was a tasty recipe, sadly it was let down by the tahina I had on hand. It was quite bitter. The garlic flavours were just right and the lemon juice was not overpowering. I had never had Za'atar before and really enjoyed it! Thanks for a lovely recipe! Made for ZWT 6 - Zingo (Voracious Vagabonds)
