Tahini and Bulgur Velvet Soup
Tahini and Bulgur Velvet Soup
Method

Much thanks to our very, very good friend Mary Patoula for this recipe!

  • Peel the carrot and slice into thin rounds.
  • Slice the leek into rounds that are 2 cm thick. Cut the tomato into cubes. Put them all in a pot. Add the bouillon cube, thyme leaves and 1 ½ liters of water. Place pot over medium to high heat. Boil vegetables until they soften.
  • When ready, use a ladle to transfer batches of the soup to a blender. Puree.
  • Each pureed batch should be placed into a bowl.
  • When all of the soup has been pureed, return pureed mixture back to pot. Add the bulgur. Cover pot with lid and place over medium heat. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  • As soon as the bulgur is cooked, turn off heat. Season with salt and pepper and add lemon zest.
  • Use a small bowl to combine the tahini and lemon juice. Then add some soup slowly. Add a spoonful at a time. (Just like you would make egg-lemon sauce.)
  • Add tahini mixture to soup. Stir with ladle.
  • Serve with some bukovo pepper flakes and some toasted sesame seeds.
  • If the soup comes out too thick, add a little water until the consistency is to your liking.
