|Tarator made with sunflower seed butter|
|Sunflower seed tarator on fish|
This is a Middle Eastern sauce that is usually based on (sesame) tahini and lemon juice. This version with sunflower seed butter is different from but quite as good as the original. It is rich, sharp and perfect on grilled meats and fish and on savory fritters such as egg-free, wheat-free, bean-free falafel.
Note that some people who are allergic to nuts and/or peanuts are also allergic to sunflower seeds. Ask your allergist if you're not sure.
