Tahini Parsley Spread
2 ½ cups fresh parsley leaves, plus a little more to garnish
1 ½ cups tahini
7½ tbsp fresh lemon juice
5 garlic cloves
3 ice cubes
Extra-virgin olive oil, to garnish
Cook's Notes: This spread is delicious when served on flatbread, or as a nutty, creamy, luxurious counterpoint to roasted veggies.
Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add parsley and cook until bright green, about 20 seconds.
Drain the parsley and submerge in ice water.
Drain and transfer to a blender along with tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and ice cubes. Season mixture with salt and pepper and purée until smooth.
To serve, spoon into a bowl and garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and more parsley leaves.
