Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Nutty tasting spread for use with salad sandwiches.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Toast seeds in a frying pan over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes stirring non-stop, until lightly browned.
  • Transfer the hot seeds to a bowl and mix well with tahini, stirring well to coat all seeds. Spread seeds out in a single layer and cool to room temperature.
  • While cooling, combine juice and garlic in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Put seeds in food processor or hand held blender along with the juice mixture, soy sauce, celery, minced onion and water; blend until the mixture is fairly fine. Cover and refrigerate if not using the spread within 15 minutes. If spread firms up mix in a tablespoon of water.
