Tahinosoupa: A Greek Tahini Soup

 Tahinosoupa is a quick dish, nutritious, easy, and ideal for fasting days. Soups are delicious and ideal for any time of the year. However, this tahini soup has another advantage due to the ingredient it bears in its name. Tahini is a food of high nutritional value, healthy, and nutritious which makes it ideal for all of us. Tahinosoupa is also great if you are a vegan or you fast. 

In addition to its nutrients, tahini adds to this soup a special taste and the most wonderful creamy texture you could ever try in velvet soup. 

Greek tahini soup is the best solution for something very nutritious, especially during periods of fasting and abstinence from meat and dairy products.

This tahinosoupa recipe is prepared in just 30 minutes.
