Tahini Dip

I find Middle Eastern cuisine packed with flavour and is easy to replicate at home. Rarely a week goes by without me making a batch of Tahini dip. It can be used in so many different ways. It can be a great snack with either veggies, falafel or crackers, it can be used to drizzle over salad or meat or even as a simple spread in your sandwich. Tahini is a great alternative to dairy as it is a rich source of calcium and healthy fats.

¾ cup Unhulled Tahini
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 lemon juiced
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup filtered water

Place all ingredients into a blend and combine until smooth. You may wish to add more water for a thinner consistency. I usually do this when I want to use the dip as a dressing.
Adjust seasoning as required.

Makes approx. 1 cup
