Green Tahini Stew

A robust stew made with zucchini, greens, plenty of fresh herbs, potatoes, lentils, & tahini.

Short History: Tahini is made of ground hulled sesame seeds, and is used in the Levant and Eastern Mediterranean, South Caucasus, and North African cuisines. There is a 4,000-year-old cuneiform (characters of a language used in the ancient writing of Mesopotamia, Persia, and Ugarit) document describing serving gods sesame wine, which seems to be the first mention of using sesame in the world! Domestically, sesame tahini was available in the United States in the 1940s in health food stores. Tahini contains more protein than most nuts! It is also a great source of B vitamins, vitamin E, and a variety of different minerals such as magnesium, iron, and calcium. Eating this meal, you will also receive ­antioxidants, iron, folate, protein, and more.

Reheating Instructions: Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes over medium heat.
