Tahini Dressing

This Tahini dip/dressing is awesome!  My kids will eat anything with this slathered on top - really.  We eat this stuff on salads, raw and steamed veggies, sauteed veggies, bread.  

I got this recipe from a book called The Vegetarian Mother and Baby Book.  This book was given to me with my first child and it is full of great mothering advice, but especially relating to food.  All of the recipes in this book are really good and easy to make.  This would be a great book for any mom.

I'll warn you, this stuff is addictive!

Tahini dip/dressing

2 tablespoons tahini
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
juice of 1/2 lemon or ~2 tablespoons is using bottled lemon juice.
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Put the tahini into a small bowl with the garlic,  1 tsp of the lemon juice, and 2 tbsps water and stir.  The mixture will go very thick and lumpy to start with, then it will gradually become smooth and creamy.  Add more water and lemon juice to get the consistency and flavor you want, and season with salt and pepper.

**This recipe only makes one serving.  After seeing how much we like this dressing, I now quadruple it.
