This garlicky tahini sauce is traditionally served with chicken kebabs, but we loved it with the beef kebabs as well.

Tahini can also be added to salad as a dressing. Rememberit is like any fat or oil which means it is 9 calories per gramme. To prepare it use 1:1 water and tahini so you have half the calories. I also add paprika cumin chopped parsley and chopped dill fresh of course. Read More
