"The key ingredient, tahini, is a sesame paste available in Asian stores, but recently has been seen in major grocery chains. It tastes like a mix of Asian and Mediterranean, close to a peanut sauce satay but made from sesame. It's quick, tasty, and out of the ordinary. Serve over couscous or noodles."

Fantastic! Real quick and tasty recipe.

This was surprisingly good! I altered it somewhat. I added a yellow bell pepper and an onion. Sauted them with the minced garlic and then added the water and the bouillon. Then I added the tahin...
