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.

  • 36 g (2 tbsp) runny hulled tahini
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) carob syrup
  • 1/4 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 so I put it in the microwave on 750 W for 10 seconds.


*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 here.
