This herbed tahini spread is the easiest spread to make and use for all things this summer!
I'll share with you a recipe tomorrow where I tailor this one as a base for a travel-friendly wrap.
I treat this herbed tahini spread as mayo, but the best part of this is that it does not require instant cooling, so you can use this spread for sandwiches or wrapping on days that you know your lunch may be sitting at room temperature a bit bits.
I also used the herb tahini spread as a dip for carrots or cucumbers.
Kind of like hummus but an alternative.
I also used tarragon in this herbed tahini spread, and if there is any herb out there that I think is understated and not used enough, it should be tarragon.
To me, it has a subtle citrus flavor and it doesn't overpower your toast.
It just lights it up when you need that little oomph.
Sometimes fresh lemon can be too much, but the tarragon is (in my opinion) its less loud and less aggressive sister.
My herbed tahini spread came out on the thicker side because if you treat it enough and the processor warms up the tahini, it will be a little thicker.
If you want it to be more on the liquid side, don't treat it so much that the food processor will heat it up.
