I said in my post Salbin Bel-Lahmeh that salbin (gundelia) is cooked in two ways. Salbin Bet-Tehineh is salbin (gundelia) cooked with olive oil, garlic, paprika, tahini and lemon juice.

Let’s make Salbin Bet-Tehineh

1, 2. This is salbin (gundelia) after cleaning, blanching and freezing. I’m using frozen salbin, remove frozen salbin from freezer and put it on a strainer and allow to defrost.

3. In deep pot, add olive oil.

4. Add crushed garlic to olive oil, turn on heat and saute garlic for 3 minutes, don’t brown it.

5, 6. Add salbin.

7. Add 1200 ml water. Bring it to boil on high heat, once water is boiling vigorously lower the heat and cover the pot and cook it for 70 minutes or until salbin is tender.

8. Once salbin is ready, bring a bowl and whisk tahini and lemon juice.

9. Thin the tahini lemon juice mixture with water (use water from the pot that contains salbin).

10, 11. Add tahini sauce to salbin, and cook uncovered for 10 minutes.

12. Turn off heat, and allow to cool.
