 “Pasta e Ceci” means “Pasta and Chickpeas” which is actually a thick soup. In Rome pasta e ceci was traditionally eaten during lent (40 days before Easter) on Fridays, when the Catholic Church discouraged eating meat. Pasta e Ceci is found throughout Italy, the one food I could find in most of the menus when we visited Italy. But the pasta e ceci had the anchovies fillets added to it, but I have made a vegetarian version of Pasta e Ceci and added a little bit of Indian spices for added kick.

Homemade Tahini Paste/Sesame Seeds Paste-Middle Eastern Delight

Tahini is a paste made by grinding roasted sesame seeds along with olive oil, used in North Africa, Greece, Turkish and Middle Eastern cuisine. Tahini plays a vital role in Middle Eastern recipes and is a foundation for many recipes likehummus, baba ghanoush, halva etc and also served as a dip on its own [Wikipedia]. Tahini paste can be purchased from shops, but can be made at home in a jiffy. I personally love Middle Eastern dishes and prepare hummus, falafel, baba ghanoush etc at home. Tahini is an excellent source of omega-3, omega-6 fatty acids and is also rich in copper and manganese. Tahini has relatively high levels of calcium and protein and is perfectly suitable for vegetarian and vegan diets.

Here's how to make Tahini Paste with step by step photos....
