A dip for all types of food...


Place the tahina, salt, black pepper, the crushed clove of garlic, and lemon juice in a large bowl and mix to form a paste.

Thin the paste with the yogurt until you get a creamy ribbon consistency sauce.

Add the chopped parsley and mix well.

The sauce is now ready to use.

This recipe is from the repertoire of over 280 recipes in my book Plated Heirlooms. The book contains recipes from all sections of the Palestinian cuisine, starting with Mooneh (pantry recipes) to dessert and everything in between. Plated Heirlooms is a documentation of recipes and cuisine rationale as well as the compiled story of the cuisine.

All Plated Heirlooms recipes come with background information and thorough descriptions that in the end tie up with the rest of the book’s narrative to explain to you the formation and makings of Palestinian cuisine.
