  • Tahini sauce: Add the garlic, salt, lemon juice, water and tahini into a food processor and blend.

    I'm eating a lot of brown rice these days because of my diet and this sounds like a nice way to get a lot of extra flavor and change things up a bit.

    Just in case:

    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    2 Tablespoons sesame seeds
    1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup tepid water
    Place sesame seeds in a blender or food processor and grind until smooth. Add sesame oil and salt. Process until combined. With the motor running, add the water in a very slow, steady stream and blend until smooth.

    Yield: about 1/2 cup

    Note: Sesame seeds turn rancid quickly, so make certain yours are fresh. Be sure to store them away from light and heat and use quickly. For more information on sesame seeds

    I love lentils and rice and lemon juice. I will try adding the tahini the next time I make this.
