This Sabich is for 2 people however the Tahini Sauce keeps for ages and can be used on so many things including salads of many kinds or just spread on toast. For this reason, it is worthwhile making a decent quantity as you have to use a blender and works better processing at least a cupful rather than less.

  • Salt
  • Vegetable oil
