Yields: about 1 1/4 cups

1/2 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
3/4 cup water
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice (to taste)
salt to taste
cumin, optional

  1. Place tahini in a jar. Add water and mix well. Add remaining ingredients and shake until blended. Makes about 1 1/4 cups. Keeps about 2 weeks in the refrigerator.

Fat-Saving Secret! Instead of stirring tahini before you measure it, pour off oil which has risen to the top of the jar and discard it.
