Cooks In10' preparation | 20' cooking


  • 1.5 quarts water
  • 1 cup orzo pasta
  • 6 heaped tbsp. tahini
  • 1 deep dish of cold water
  • Salt, pepper
  • Lemon (optional)


  1. Bring the water to a boil, add the orzo pasta and cook for about 10 minutes.
  2. Put some cold water in a deep dish and add 2 tbsp. of warm water from the pot.
  3. Gently mix in the tahini until combined (the tahini will thicken at first, but will soon loosen up).
  4. While the tahini is still warm, keep adding warm cooking water and mix well.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat and let it stand for 5 minutes.
  6. Stir in the diluted tahini sauce and season.
  7. Do not reheat the soup because the tahini will separate!
  8. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and squeeze a few drops of lemon.
