Tanoreen - Brussels Sprouts & Tahini Sauce
"By far, one of the most popular dishes served at our restaurant, Tanoreen. Caramelized sprouts, cool tahini and crunchy panko make eating your greens deliciously good. Tahini sauce, a smooth blend of toasted sesame paste, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil, is ubiquitous in Middle Eastern kitchens. It is the condiment. At Tanoreen, I mix it into salad dressings and drizzle it into cauliflower casseroles. My daughter? She dips French fries in it! Learn to make this and you will have a simple, delicious, versatile sauce to add to your repertoire." - Rawia & Jumana
