  • 1 heaping tablespoon tahini
  • 1 level tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup apple juice

  2. Mix until creamy with no chunks remaining


Preparation time:
5 minutes
Cooking time: None
Difficulty rating: Easy

Tips

  • If you don’t have a food processor, you can also use a hand blender but it may take longer to achieve the creamy consistency.
  • Feel free to modify the recipe by adding a pinch of salt, a bit more tahini or a squeeze of lemon.
  • For tastiest results, use organic chick peas, hulled tahini, and apple juice with no added sugar.
  • Depending on the amount of pulp in your juice, you may need a different quantity. If using freshly pressed apple juice, you may need a little less. Try pouring half in then adding the rest as needed to ensure you end up with a nice consistency.
