Tahini and Carob Molasses (V)

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 meze. In it I include some other amazing dishes from the Middle East (hummus, baba ganoush, tabbouleh, fattoush, falafel).

Tahini and carob molasses with pita bread is great as a quick snack or as part of a Lebanese meze.

  • 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.
