Tahini Carrot Appetizer
Tahini carrot appetizer with homemade tahini paste. Deliciously flavored with mint and garlic. Really simple and healthy snack, that you can enjoy warm or cold.
I had a leftover tahini paste from YouTube tutorial I filmed for my Armenian YouTube channel, and a package of colored sweet carrots.
So decided to steam the carrots, spice and season the tahini paste and be done.
Turned out really delicious, therefore I’m sharing the recipe .
Thank you all!
