Tahini soup from Agion Oros
In a pot boil the water, salt it and then add the orzo.
In a bowl add the tahini, add the lemon little by little and mix with a hand whisk, until you have a thick cream.
Next, in the same bowl add a bit of the water where the orzo is boiling and dilute the tahini, until you have a fluid mixture, without lumps.
When the orzo is boiled, remove the pot from heat and the tahini progressively, while mixing with a hand whisk.
Adjust to your tastes with salt, pepper and cumin. Add a bit of more lemon, if needed.
Finally, cover lid and for 20 minutes, let it cool down and become more gruelly, before you serve it.
- When you remove it from heat, the soup might look a bit sparse, but after 20 minutes, it will look like the way it is supposed to look.
- You can use rice or another kind of pasta.
- For those who love lemon, you can add much more.
- It matches great with chili flakes, zest of lemon and fresh spearmint.
