Suggestions for UNIFIL Menu. Recipe 1: Spaghetti with Tahini

Does anyone notice how slow the UN and EU are in their actions? I mean it took them 33 days to reach a cease-fire that could have been reached in 1 week. And now it is taking ages to deploy peacekeepers.
A friend of mine reflected that ‘it is the food stupid!’. Europeans want to make sure their soldiers are well-fed. So, I decided to start a series of menu suggestions that mix local and European recipes. Sahtein!

  • 1/2 cup Tahini
  • 3/4 Cups Lemon Juice
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 Cloves garlic
  • Salt to Taste
  • Olive oil
  • Wild Thyme (abundant in South Lebanon)
  • Pasta

Mince garlic.
Add Tahini, Garlic, Lemon Juice and water. Mix well

Cook pasta.

Add tahini sauce to pasta and garnish with wild thyme and olive oil.

Serves: 6. Preparation time: 10-15mins

Best eaten on the ruins of Bint Jbeil.
