Today's Eat Beat: Green tahini sauce
A wonderfully thick and nutty paste made from ground sesame seeds, tahini is common in Middle Eastern cuisine, flavoring a variety of dishes both savory and sweet, such as hummus, baba ghanouj and even cookies. It's also the base for rich and flavorful tahini sauce. Flavored with garlic, lemon salt and a pinch of cayenne, this sauce gets its light green tint from fresh cilantro and parsley. The dip is great served with roasted meats and vegetables, and makes a perfect dipping sauce as demonstrated in this video by Test Kitchen manager Noelle Carter. You can also find the recipe here.
