{RECIPE} shrimp & beans tahini pita sandwich
Jul 012014
 

This recipe of Shrimp & Beans Tahini Pita Sandwich was the result of trying to put together a meal one night and using up what we had in the pantry at the time. The two kids and the hubby completely fell in love with this recipe! If my two picky eaters liked this one, I know it must be a winner!

The real piece de resistance of this recipe is the tahini sauce. It’s made from tahini (or sesame paste) and lemon juice, garlic and salt. The tahini sauce is so versatile and makes anything taste more decadent. You can use the tahini sauce to flavor chicken, eggs, veggies, steak, fish,… anything really! Let’s get to the recipe.
