    Frank Butcher's Note:

    With the use of lime and olive oil, this could be "Greek", although it isn't called that. Also the result is of a "creamy" consistency, suitable for dipping fries.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Blend lime juice, olive oil, kelp & water at medium speed.
    2. 2
      Slowly add the ground sesame seeds.
    3. 3
      Continue blending until the mixture is like thick heavy cream.
    4. 4
      Notes: Add more sesame to make mixture more paste-like. Then this paste can be used for making hummus.
    5. 5
      * The kelp acts as a mild thickening agent. This recipe works just fine without it. The kelp would add some salt to the mix, so if kelp isn't used, a pinch of salt is in order.

      As I am of Greek extraction, I know all too well that this CAN be categorized as Greek. Tahini is very commonly used in Greek cuisine and can be used many ways. Very good.

      The amounts of liquids in this recipe are very wrong (much too low). A corrected recipe may be found at #230944.

      Thanks for the recipe! I wanted to make hummus, but didn't have any tahini. . . realized I had sesame seeds and could probably make it myself - which I did!
