The menu

Main course: Gluten free pasta with vegetables in a tomato sauce made by Ruth

Dessert:  Fresh seasonal fruit with home made herbal tea and cinnamon – good for digestion

*Tehina or Tahini is a paste made from ground, hulled sesame seeds used in North African, Greek, Turkish, and Middle Eastern cuisine. Tahini is served as a dip on its own or as a major component of hummus, baba ghanoush, and halva. Tahini is an excellent source of copper, manganese and healthy fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. Tahini’s relatively high levels of calcium and protein make it a useful addition to vegetarian and vegan diets, as well as to raw food diets when eaten in its unroasted form. Compared to peanut butter, tahini has higher levels of fiber and calcium and lower levels of sugar and saturated fats. (source: Wikipedia). In Belgium you can buy it at Delhaize or Jewish shops in Antwerp like Grosz. You can buy it ready made or raw like ours. Then you just have to add water, salt and some lemon to it and make it as liquid as you please. Besides using it with vegetables you could also try Tehina with some hummus and pita or in your Shakshuka or salad. Endless possibilities….
