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.
