Also known as tahini sauce. This version of tarator is made with tahini instead of walnuts and yogurt.
- Place all ingredients, except the water and parsley, in the food processor, or a recipient suitable for the blender, and process in short bursts until a smooth paste is formed. Add water while blending.
- Check flavor, mix in chopped parsley, transfer to a bowl, and serve.
If the flavor is too sharp, we can add less lemon juice and a little more water. Equally, add one more clove of garlic, if you prefer strong flavors.
Add some natural yogurt to the tahini sauce for a variation.
To make tahini at home, blend 5 cups of sesame seeds, lightly toasted and cooled down, with 1 1/2 cups olive oil. Tahini will keep in the refrigerator for over 3 months in an airtight container.
