M-J’s Tahini and Cucumber Canapés

Making the canapé cups from Guerrero Fresqui-Ricas thin, raw tortillas is easy. Coat them with olive oil on both sides, cut into small round shapes (I use an empty tomato-paste can) and place in a mini-muffin pan, then bake them in a moderately hot oven until puffy and light brown. Mix tahini with lemon juice and seasoning salt. Using a pastry bag, fill the puffy areas of the cups with this sauce, or simply spread it onto their surfaces. Top these with pieces of cucumber.

Elegant Tahini Sauce

M-J’s Simple Recipe for Elegant Tahini Sauce
Sesame paste mixed with lemon juice, water, salt and the merest hint of garlic powder makes an elegant tahini dip or sauce for mezedes, or pre-prandial appetisers.

Use this elegant and simple tahini sauce as a dip for flat-breads, steamed cauliflower, celery, other fresh vegetables, and fried potatoes. Optionally, you may drizzle olive oil over the tahini.
People find tahini sauce very pleasing in the summer months, and it is economical to make, since the sesame paste expands greatly when mixed with water and lemon juice.
