I was sitting in a restaurant in Cyprus waiting for my order when the waiter brought a little dip and some bread to my table as a starter. It tasted amazing so I was curious to know more. I did some research and found that it was tahini with carob molasses, a dish from the Middle East. They usually eat it with pita bread.
I love making tahini and carob molasses as part of a Lebanese meze. In it I include some other amazing dishes from the Middle East (hummus, baba ganoush, tabbouleh salad, fattoush salad, falafel balls, tahini sauce).
Tahini and Carob Molasses (V)
Tahini and carob syrup go together deliciously in this easy snack or appetiser. Great with pita bread dipped in it. It can also be made as one of the dishes in a Lebanese meze.
- 72 g (4 tbsp) runny hulled tahini
- 10 ml (2 tsp) carob syrup
- 1/2 tsp maple syrup
- 1 small pita bread sliced
- Pour tahini into a small cup.
- In a separate cup mix together carob syrup and maple syrup then pour this mixture over tahini, making a nice drizzle effect.
- Serve with pita bread. I like to make my pita bread warm in the microwave.
*Use hulled tahini as it’s much better in taste than unhulled which is more bitter. Use tahini brand that you like as the taste can be quite different across the brands. You can find which brand I use in the post, where I discuss my favourite vegan food products.
