Preparation

  1. Blend all tahini ingredients together in a food processor. Make sure to scrape down the sides frequently. Blend until the ingredients are incorporated and smooth – the longer you blend the softer and creamier the spread gets. Add to a jar and store in the fridge for up to a few weeks.
  2. Toast your bread and thinly chop your cucumber. For best results, use a mandolin.
  3. Spread the black tahini on your toasted bread and save the rest in the fridge. Top with the sliced cucumber, micro arugula, a drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of sea salt.
