Each family prepares tahini their way. To say exact quantities is very difficult. Some people like tahini as pate and other, more liquid.

I recommend you that every time that you prepare this recipe to change a little bit the way of preparation. Add a little more water. Change the quantity of parsley or lemon until you find tahini that suits the most to your personal taste.


  • 1/2 cup of tahini
  • 1/2 cup of cold water
  • one lemon juice
  • two finely chopped cloves of garlic
  • a handful of chopped parsley
  • half teaspoon of salt
  • a pinch of black pepper and paprika


My favorite way to prepare tahini is to mix all the ingredients and serve it after.

Tahini is perfect to spread on bread or to serve as a sauce for meat or salad.
