Tahini Tomatoes

Potted Prawns
Potted Prawns

These pretty tomatoes are very simple and make the perfect light and healthy lunch with, for example, chicken breast and avocado, maybe with a little watercress salad on the side.


  • 2 tbsps. tahini paste

  • 1 tbsp. plain Greek yoghurt

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 tsp. flaky sea salt

  • Pinch of ground cumin

  • Sliced tomatoes and cherry tomatoes

  • Toasted pine kernels (optional)


  • Put the tahini, yoghurt, sea salt and pinch of cumin in a bowl

  • Grate in the garlic

  • Blitz together with a hand held stick blender

  • Add a tablespoon or two of cold water if necessary to bring the sauce to the consistency of double cream

  • Drizzle over the tomatoes

Helpful Hints

I like to sprinkle something black over this, black sesame seeds look lovely, as do Urfa chilli flakes or Nigella seeds;
toasted pine kernels are delicious too, and it’s pretty and delicious enough without anything.
