Actually, let's look it up... (be right back)
Here it is from the Calorie Count site:
1 C = 1909 calories!
Total fat = 216.0 g

Can you believe that! Olive oil is actually my oil of choice for salad -I love the taste and have been know to dip a piece or two of bread in it occasionally. It has a lot of great properties and there is no need for fat phobia, as it is a component of a healthy diet. I just don't think it is necessary to pour it into every recipe in sight.
All right, let me get off the soap box and post the recipe already! Ha
- 1/2 Tb Cumin
- Sea salt
Add the rest of the ingredients in the proportions needed for the desired consistency. For example, don't throw the entire 1 C of Tahini in there at first. Get a few tablespoons' worth, taste it and act accordingly. Same with the rest of the ingredients.
This is a make-up-as-you-go recipe.
It comes in both "raw" and "toasted," with the later being more common in regular grocery stores, generally in the peanut butter section.
It's pretty high in calories too, though not as much as the oil -all the more reason to omit said oil.
1 C (8oz) = 415 calories.
