    These biscuits are buttery, crumbly and totally moreish. They have a delicious aromatic flavour, which comes from the tahini. Enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee.

    This is a classic from the Middle East where tahini, a nutty-flavoured sesame seed paste, is used like cream to add substance and moisture to simple dishes. Try serving with a salad of black olives, tomatoes and red onions with sprigs of basil.

    Homemade hummus only takes a few moments to whizz together and makes a perfect light lunch, served simply with pitta. But for a balanced meal, turn it into this more substantial salad with the addition of crisp salad vegetables.

    Serve this delicious sauce with falafel pittas or with fresh vegetables. Best if made a few hours in advance, but it can be served immediately. I chop the garlic, and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes before adding the remaining ingredients. This increases the amount of allicin, a compound shown to have antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antiprotozoal activity.

    Chocolate and tahini combine for a mousse-like pot of deliciousness. A quick and easy dessert that can easily be made vegan by using plant-based milk instead of regular milk. Try almond or cashew milk for great results.

    This vegetable-rich couscous is lower in fat than most pilafs and it makes a marvellous, healthy main dish, or an excellent side dish for almost any simply cooked meat or poultry, when it will serve 8 or more. Any leftovers can be used as a delicious stuffing for chicken or other poultry or game birds.

    This is a fantastic and tasty snack for anyone. My toddler loves to dip things in it or to have it as a snack on a tortilla or cracker. It's great as a dip for vegetables and crackers, or used as a spread on wraps and sandwiches.
