Vegan Lentil Tahini Soup

Posted on Updated on

Before we get started, tahini is ground sesame seeds. Regular sesame seeds will add the same flavor but not the same consistency. We added tahini to get that delicious – almost nutty flavor – and to create a thicker, opaque, almost melted cheese consistency to the broth.

1 1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
