Tehina is a thick dip made from sesame seeds. It is often used as a topping for falafel and other dishes, but at home we used it as a dip with fresh French bread. My mother would leave me instructions in the morning to make tehina for dinner that night and I enjoyed slowly adding water and stirring.
