3 heaping tbsp tahini (sesame paste)
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/2 - 1 lemon, juiced
enough water to form a smooth paste
salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, cumin
In a bowl, add the tahini and whisk in the juice of 1/2 a lemon. Add water a little at a time until you form a smooth paste. If you thinned it out too much, add more tahini. Add the garlic and spices. Taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking (I added a little more of the lemon juice at this stage). Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika, a drizzle of olive oil, and top with parsley.
