This is a pretty versatile recipe. I change it up a bit almost each time I make it, which is a good thing, because it’s an easy recipe with a very versatile base. I have tried changing things up by adding and removing things like cucumbers, adding crushed cayenne pepper, beans and lots more. Since this website is directed towards children, I’ll refrain from the spicier version, and stick to the basic one.
This recipe is dairy free, gluten free and nut free. So no animal byproducts that are unhealthy for those little human bodies. The base is equal parts tahini and water, and I have included my preferred combination of spices, but again, please feel free to play around and make this your own.
For those who are not familiar with tahini, it is a condiment made out of toasted ground hulled sesame seeds. If you are able to make it at home for this recipe, I definitely encourage you to do so. If not, you can purchase some at your local grocery or health food store. Be sure to check the ingredients.
2 cups tahini
2 cups water
1/2 white onion (chopped)
Juice from 1 lemon
4 cloves garlic
2 tsp fresh parsley (minced)
black pepper to taste
greek spice to taste (optional)
salt or garlic salt to taste
Blend ingredients together and serve.
Don’t have a blender? Grab a fork, stir until you get a smooth consistency and serve.
