Promise kept - Home Made Tehina

Equal amounts of tehina paste (its thick and gooey) and cold water (I use mineral water)
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
juice from 1 lemon (at least for amount of 1/2 cup tehina + 1/2 cup water)
salt
olive oil
parsley for garnish

In shaker - shake the paste and water. Add lemon juice, garlic and salt and shake vigorously. If too thin - add more paste. If too thick add either more water or more lemon juice.
Add 1 tsp olive oil and garnisg with parsley.

I love tehini paste. I'm going to have to make it again with your recipe. I made it once before a long time ago and it didn't come out well.

Happy New Year!

Hi Paz!
If you can find real authentic arabic tehina paste - that would be the best. And make sure the water is really cold. Thats the secret..:-)

Have a great New Year!
