Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Crush the garlic with a good pinch of sea salt using a pestle and mortar or garlic press. Mix in the tahini paste with a balloon whisk.

  • STEP 2

    Keep whisking as you slowly mix in the lemon juice – the tahini will lighten in colour and thicken. Taste it, and if you are happy, loosen slightly with a few tsp of water. If you prefer it more tangy, beat in more lemon juice. Cover and chill for 30 mins-1 hr. When ready to serve, sprinkle with paprika and drizzle with oil, if you like.
