Tahini dip with whipped cream cheese is topped with an olive oil, sesame seed mixture, laced with the flavor of turmeric. There were no leftovers!



8 oz whipped cream cheese

3/4 c sour cream or labne

1/4 c tahini

2 T water

Salt and fresh ground pepper

1/4 c olive oil

2 T white sesame seeds

1 t ground turmeric

Flaky sea salt such as Maldon

Optional: Chile flakes such as Aleppo or Urfa and herbs of your choice


Combine whipped cream cheese, sour cream, tahini and water in a bowl. Using an immersion blender, blend the mixture. If it is cold you can use a food processor. A fork may also work!

Season with salt and pepper.

Heat olive oil and sesame seeds over medium heat. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes until sesame seeds are toasted and fragrant.  Remove from heat and stir in turmeric.

Place tahini dip in a shallow bowl or on a large plate and top with the sesame seed oil. Garnish with sea salt and chile flakes and herbs if desired.
